MLB Draft 2014: Reactions to Miami Marlins' day three selections

Rich Schultz

The Miami Marlins looked to add depth on the final day of the MLB Draft on Saturday. Here are some reactions from around the league.

The Marlins have the potential to sign two University of Arkansas players in one Draft. Eric Fisher, who was selected in the 17th round of the First-Year Player Draft on Saturday, is the teammate of Miami's third-round pick, Brian Anderson. The left-handed Fisher hit .268 for the Razorbacks as a redshirt junior and is a career .247 hitter. His .451 slugging percentage, nine homers and 45 RBIs made him the second-best slugger on the team behind Anderson.

-Marlins stock up on left-handed pitchers, middle infielders in Draft | marlins.com: News

Marlins spent most of the rest of the 2014 First-Year Player Draft picking up lefty pitchers and high school position players. Before the Draft started, the Marlins had no shortstops among their Top 20 Prospects. They were quick to try to remedy that, choosing three from high schools and one from the University of Arkansas in the first 10 rounds. That collegiate shortstop, Brian Anderson (76th overall), finished his junior season with a .328 average, seven home runs and 51 RBIs.
