Stock Up, Down for Miami Marlins' Top 5 Prospects

If you pay attention to the Miami Marlins for long enough, it is very difficult not to like many of the people they have in the organization. Mike Redmond is one of the best and most underrated managers in baseball. Their farm system, the same one that produced Giancarlo Stanton and Jose Fernandez, is quite good as well. Take a look at their top five and whether their stock is on the rise or not this season.

Though Conley's ERA is a little bit elevated at this point, his WHIP is down after a jump to triple-A this season. Allowing fewer base runners on the larger stage is pushing that stock up for sure.

Nicolino also has an ERA that is a little higher than you might want but both that and his WHIP statistic are lower than they were in the small double-A stint in 2013. That means simply that he is doing better than he was last season in double-A which means his stock is on the rise and chances are his ERA is about to begin falling.

Chances are good that if Marisnick's stock had been going up recently he would find himself in a MLB jersey. So far in 2014 that doesn't look likely. He has a .169 average and only 6 RBI in 19 games.

2 – Colin Moran – 3B: Stock Down

Moran has done nothing in the stats yet because he really hasn't played yet. If he had been out there for 20 games by now, he probably would see his stock rising. As it is, stocks fall just a bit.

Through four starts Heaney is 2 – 0 with a 1.48 ERA and a microscopic 0.86 WHIP. If you wonder why they are so high on this guy, I have a feeling we will all find out in the next couple of years.
