Virtual locks: Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich
Who is still in play: Brian Bogusevic, Marcell Ozuna, Jake Marisnick, Kyle Jensen, Brent Keys, Reed Johnson
Giancarlo Stanton and Christian Yelich were the Marlins two best offensive players last season, so they will be on the 25-man roster.
As for who joins them, there's two separate competitions.
The main battle is between Marcell Ozuna and Jake Marisnick for the center field job while the undercard pits Brian Bogusevic, Kyle Jensen, Brent Keys and Reed Johnson.
The only way Johnson stays if he impresses the Marlins brass because, like Wigginton, he signed a minor league deal.
Keys is a long shot to make the team. However, if Furcal goes down and the Marlins need a leadoff hitter, Keys could be the guy. Keys won the Florida State League batting title with a .346 average in 95 games with advanced Single-A Jupiter last year. In 2012, he won the South Atlantic League batting crown with a .335 average for Single-A Greensboro.
Jensen is probably the only guy in the Marlins organization who can match Stanton's home run swing. The 25-year-old has smashed 97 home runs in the last four seasons in the minor leagues, including at least 18 in each of those campaigns. However, Jensen has issues with making contact as he's hit a combined .236 in Double-A and Triple-A in 972 at-bats.
Unlike Johnson, Bogusevic is a left-handed hitter. Unlike Jensen and Keys, Bogusevic has major league experience. And unlike all three, he's on the 40-man roster. The only way Bogusevic doesn't make the team is if he struggles and Dietrich wins the second base job, pushing Furcal's switch-hitting bat to the bench.
As for the main event between Ozuna and Marisnick, Ozuna has proved to be more ready to hit major league pitching than Marisnick.
Ozuna finished 2013 with a .265/.303/.389 slash line with three home runs and 32 RBI in 70 games while primarily batting fourth or fifth in a depleted lineup. Marisnick produced worse numbers while primarily batting seventh.
ESPN.com's Keith Law stated Marisnick could probably use at least three months in Triple-A just to work on his ability to recognize breaking balls. MLB.com's Joe Frisaro feels the same way because it would be best for Marisnick to refine his game whether it takes a few months or the entire year.
Otherwise, if the team rushes Marisnick, Law feels he might never fulfill his potential because he was forced to sink or swim against major-league arms.
So if it isn't apparent by now, the two outfielders to join Stanton and Yelich are...
Who will it be: Brian Bogusevic, Marcell Ozuna
