Much like the Atlanta Braves, I couldn't reduce the list of young impact players for the Florida Marlins. With Josh Johnson and Ricky Nolasco getting locked up this offseason, the Marlins future, much like the Braves, looks bright.
The Marlins outfield is filled with young talent that are all potential superstars.
Chris Coghlan had a rough second year in the majors after his 2009 ROY award, but I'll chalk that up to the sophomore slump; I expect to see him hitting around .300 with a .360 OBP in 2011.
Logan Morrison got to see a little major league time at the end of the last season but he didn't show off all he can do. Morrison is a guy with excellent plate discipline, a lot of power, and the ability to drive the ball into the outfield gaps. Since he is young his power may be more doubles than HR power right now but that'll change as he gets older. At only 23 years old, he's got a lot of time to develop still.
Mike Stanton...21 years old...maybe a star already? After only one season in the majors it may be a bit early to put that tag on him, but it's certainly coming. He's an all-around player and his ability to hit for power, but be patient at the plate, is a combination that will lead to a lot of success for him, and the Marlins. Don't be surprised to see a 30+ HR season in 2011 with 100+ RBIs.
