No. 82 OF Peyton Burdick

School: Wright State University

Measureables: 22 years old, 6’0”, 210 lbs.

Pre-Draft Rankings: No. 183 (Baseball America), unranked (MLB Pipeline), No. 122 (2080 Baseball)

2019 Stats: .395/.537/.710, 13 HR, 63 RBI, 60 BB, 34 K in 56 G

Previously Drafted? No

Twitter: @Pburd88

The 2019 Horizon League Player of the Year is slightly older than his peers due to the Tommy John surgery that caused him to miss the 2017 season.

“Burdick needs to do a better job recognizing breaking balls, but he’s shown a more discerning eye this spring and scouts like his swing. Burdick has excellent strength, but his pro future depends on how much he can continue to improve his hitting ability.” —Baseball America

No. 111 1B Evan Edwards

School: North Carolina State

Measureables: 6’0”, 200 lbs.

Pre-Draft Rankings: No. 297 (Baseball America), unranked (MLB Pipeline), unranked (2080 Baseball)

Previously Drafted? No

2019 Stats: .330/.455/.604, 14 HR, 60 RBI, 51 BB, 47 K in 61 G

Twitter: @Evan_Edwards16

Prior to transferring to NC State, Edwards spent 2016-17 at Spartanburg Methodist College.

“Even though he is physically maxed out, Edwards moves well around the bag at first base and is a sound defensive presence on the infield.” —Baseball America

No. 141 RHP Evan Fitterer

School: Aliso Niguel HS (CA); committed to UCLA

Measureables: 18 years old, 6’3”, 185 lbs.

Pre-Draft Rankings: No. 60 (Baseball America), No. 74 (MLB Pipeline), No. 100 (2080 Baseball)

Previously Drafted? No

Only reason why Fitterer was still available in the fifth round? Signability concerns.

“Fitterer has continued to show present stuff, including a two-seam fastball with impressive late life and excellent feel to spin and manipulate a curveball that projects as a plus pitch. He also has feel for a changeup that should be average...expected to be an expensive sign.” —Baseball America

No. 171 RHP MD Johnson

School: Dallas Baptist University

Measureables: 21 years old, 6’6”, 185 lbs.

Pre-Draft Rankings: unranked (Baseball America), unranked (MLB Pipeline), unranked (2080 Baseball)

2019 Stats: 2.76 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, 110 K in 98.0 IP

Previously Drafted? No

Johnson was homeschooled prior to attending DBU. That’s unusual!

The tall right-hander seems like a prime candidate to sign below slot value so that the Marlins can allocate the savings toward higher-round picks who have more negotiating leverage.

No. 201 RHP Bryan Hoeing

School: University of Louisville

Measureables: 22 years old, 6’6”, 225 lbs.

Pre-Draft Rankings: unranked (Baseball America), unranked (MLB Pipeline), unranked (2080 Baseball)

2019 Stats: 2.70 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, 60 K in 68.0 IP

Previously Drafted? Yes (2018, 36th round by San Francisco Giants)

Of the 24 appearances during his senior season, Bryan Hoeing made only five starts.

Copy and paste from the previous pick...the tall right-hander seems like a prime candidate to sign below slot value so that the Marlins can allocate the savings toward higher-round picks who have more negotiating leverage.

No. 231 RF Tevin Mitchell

School: UC Santa Barbara

Measureables: 22 years old, 6’1”, 175 lbs.

Pre-Draft Rankings: unranked (Baseball America), unranked (MLB Pipeline), unranked (2080 Baseball)

2019 Stats: .277/.373/.451, 5 HR, 37 RBI, 20 SB in 54 G

Previously Drafted? No

Twitter: @Tevin_Mitchell6

Underwhelming collegiate career for Mitchell prior to his senior campaign.

Once again, Marlins appear to be going cheap here to prioritize other prospects.

No. 261 RHP Evan Brabrand

School: Liberty University

Measureables: 6’2”, 190 lbs.

Pre-Draft Rankings: unranked (Baseball America), unranked (MLB Pipeline), unranked (2080 Baseball)

The fifth-year senior was an All-Conference First Team selection in 2019 as a reliever (primarily closing games).

No. 291 CF J.D. Orr

Peyton Burdick’s collegiate teammate comes with a dramatically different skill set, predicated on speed and defense.
