The future OF of the Miami Marlins should help fill the new Miami stadium

In 2011, the Miami Marlins possessed one of the worst minor league systems in the major leagues. Matt Dominguez was supposed to be the next top prospect to make the jump after Mike Stanton, but with a sub-par 2011 and Hanley Ramirez taking over the duties at third base, he may have missed his big opportunity. This left the Marlins without a highly touted bat for the future.  

Going into 2012, there are going to be few players in the lower levels of the Marlins' system that will be on everyone's radar. Two players who really started to make a name for themselves are outfielders Christian Yelich and Marcell Ozuna.

Both in single-A during the 2011 season, these two young prospects put together years that put them on the map and on top of most Marlins' top prospect lists.

Let's take a look at each of these prospects and try to get a clearer view of how they might give the Marlins one of the top OF trios in Major League Baseball.
