Marlins Top Players for the Future Announced

New, 1 comment

The Marlins will announce today their top players for the future.

Two minor-league prospects with strong ties to South Florida -- Gaby Sanchez and Chris Volstad -- have been voted within the organization as their top two players for the future.

''There are 100-and-something guys in the organization that want to be playing with the Marlins,'' Sanchez, out of the University of Miami, said Sunday. ``Everybody talks about it. You just have to produce.''

Sanchez and Volstad received top honors: Sanchez as the organization's player of the year with Volstad selected as its top pitcher. The Marlins plan to announce the awards today.

Congratulations to the both of them!

Sanchez is still playing in the AFL and is doing pretty well.  He is hitting at a clip of:

.286/.410/.449

If you would like to read his journal of his experiences in the AFL you need to go no further than here.
