The Miami Marlins are a Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise based in Miami, Florida. They play in the National League East division. Since the franchise was established the Marlins have selected 25 players in the first round. Officially known as the "First-Year Player Draft",[1] the Rule 4 Draft is MLB's primary mechanism for assigning players from high schools, colleges, and other amateur clubs to its franchises. The draft order is determined based on the previous season's standings, with the team possessing the worst record receiving the first pick.[1] In addition, teams which lost free agents in the previous off-season may be awarded compensatory or supplementary picks.[2] The First-Year Player Draft is unrelated to the 1992 expansion draft in which the Marlins filled their roster.

Of the 25 players picked in the first round by Florida, 14 have been pitchers, the most of any position; 9 of these were right-handed, while 5 were left-handed. Four outfielders were selected and two players each were taken at first base, third base, and catcher. The Marlins have also drafted one shortstop in the first round, though they have never taken a second baseman.[3] Seven of the players came from high schools or universities in the state of California, while four players came Florida and three came from Texas and Louisiana.[3]

Two of the Marlins' first-round picks have won championships with the franchise. Charles Johnson (1992) won a World Series title on the 1997 championship team and Josh Beckett (1999) won with the 2003 team.[4][5] Beckett also went on to be a part of the Boston Red Sox 2007 World Series championship team.[5] Chris Coghlan (2006) is the only first-round pick of the Marlins to win the Rookie of the Year Award, taking the honor in 2009.[6] None of their first-round picks have been elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame or won the Most Valuable Player or Cy Young Award. The Marlins have made three selections in the supplemental round of the draft and have made the first overall selection once (2000).[3][7] They have also had five compensatory picks since their first draft in 1992.[3] These additional picks are provided when a team loses a particularly valuable free agent in the previous off-season,[2][8][V] or, more recently, if a team fails to sign a draft pick from the previous year.[9] The Marlins have never failed to sign a first-round pick.

Footnotes[edit]

  • V Free agents are evaluated by the Elias Sports Bureau and rated "Type A", "Type B", or not compensation-eligible. If a team offers arbitration to a player but that player refuses and subsequently signs with another team, the original team may receive additional draft picks. If a "Type A" free agent leaves in this way his previous team receives a supplemental pick and a compensation pick from the team with which he signs. If a "Type B" free agent leaves in this way his previous team receives only a supplemental pick.[9]
