There is plenty of potential in the Miami Marlins' farm system. Some of those prospects could see time at the major league level by August.

Justin Nicolino was part of the haul the Marlins received in the Jose Reyes/Mark Buehrle deal with the Blue Jays. This season he has pitched great in Double-A Jacksonville with a 7-2 record and a 3.16 ERA. If the Marlins have any more injuries to pitchers, Nicolino would be in line to get a shot at the rotation.

Brian Flynn has only gotten one appearance for the Marlins this season after a mere four starts last season. Flynn has kept a steady 3.62 ERA with 65 strikeouts at Triple-A New Orleans this season, and he could see time either in the bullpen or in the rotation by August.

There is no doubt Anthony DeSclafani will see time in the rotation again this season. It could come sooner rather than later. DeSclafani has an inflated 7.40 ERA with the Marlins in five starts, but he has posted a 3.62 ERA through five starts at Triple-A. DeSclafani will definitely get another chance some time in August to prove himself.

His first few games with the Marlins were not what the team wanted. J.T. Realmuto went 4-for-20 with five RBIs in his first stint, but because the Marlins are so iffy at catcher behind Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Realmuto could definitely get another chance.

Andrew Heaney did not have a terrific first stint with the Marlins. However, there is still hope for him. A few more starts at Triple-A will help regain Heaney's confidence and help him leap back into the rotation by August.
