August 1st, 2022

Below is a list of every player drafted by the Marlins.

Draft-and-follow picks -- high school and junior college players selected after the 10th round who attend a two-year college after the Draft -- can sign with their selecting teams for up to $250,000 up until a week prior to the following year’s Draft.

Total bonus pool: $10,491,700
MLB rank: 8


Aug. 1: Marlins sign all but one Draftee
Miami agreed to terms with 19 of its 20 selections before the Aug. 1 deadline. Right-hander Evan Chrest of Wharton High School in Florida was the lone exception. The 17th-rounder is a University of Jacksonville commit.

1 (6): Jacob Berry, 3B, Louisiana State, $6,000,000
Four days after Berry was selected by the Marlins, he made the trip to loanDepot Park after agreeing to a slightly under-slot $6 million signing bonus. He took grounders alongside Marlins Major Leaguers like Brian Anderson and Garrett Cooper, and said of the “surreal” experience: “I've been dreaming about this since I first started playing baseball, being in a big league park, playing in a big league park." Berry was the No. 7-ranked Draft prospect per MLB Pipeline. More »

2 (43): Jacob Miller, RHP, Liberty Union HS (Baltimore, Ohio), $1,679,900
The Marlins signed Miller below the pick value of $1,700,000. Miller, the No. 37 Draft prospect per MLB Pipeline, struck out 133 batters in 57 innings in his senior season and featured in all the major showcases to face more advanced competition.

3 (85): Karson Milbrandt, RHP, Liberty Senior HS (Mo.), $1.5 million
The Marlins more than doubled the slot value ($747,100) to sign the Vanderbilt recruit. The athletic 18-year-old has a high-spin fastball that reaches 96 mph and improving breaking pitches.

4 (112) Marcus Johnson, RHP, Duke, $510,000
Johnson's fastball ranges from 90-94 mph as starter, with an 82-85 mph slider with high spin and two-plane break when on. Johnson's fading changeup also is coming along.

5 (142): Josh White, RHP, California, $406,500
White signed for the full slot value for the No. 142 overall pick. He can overpower hitters with a mid-90s fastball and mid-80s slider when he's locked in, and he may prove most valuable out of the bullpen at the Major League level. White had 91 strikeouts in 67 2/3 innings for the Golden Bears and made the USA Baseball's College National Team in 2021.

6 (172): Jared Poland, RHP, Louisville, $149,000

7 (202): Kyle Crigger, RHP, Louisiana Tech, $37,500
The 23-year-old was named First Team All-Conference USA after recording 10 saves and striking out 79 batters in 69 innings. Crigger posted a 2.68 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP in 60 outings (one start) across three seasons for the Bulldogs. He signed well below the slot value of $239,500.

8 (232): Dale Stanavich, LHP, Rutgers, $47,500
The 23-year-old was named 2022 All-Big Ten First Team, having recorded 10 saves and striking out 51 batters in 34 1/3 innings as a redshirt junior. During last year's Cape Cod League, Stanavich recorded 16.9 strikeouts per nine innings. A bulldog reliever type, he was up to 95 mph with a solid slider. Stanavich signed below the slot value of $190,600.

9 (262): Evan Taylor, LHP, Arkansas, $140,000
Taylor signed for just below the No. 262 pick's slot value of $165,300. The left-handed reliever struck out 54 batters in 44 1/3 innings during his senior season for the Razorbacks. He pitches out of a low arm slot and has good metrics on his fastball, which sits 88-92 mph, and his sweeping slider.

10 (292): Cade Gibson, LHP, Louisiana Tech, $12,500
Gibson signed below the slot value of $154,600.

11 (322): Alex Williams, RHP, Stanford, $125,000
The 22-year-old was named Pac-12 Pitcher of the Year after posting a 1.36 ERA in league play. He throws strikes with four pitches, with his best being an upper-70s changeup with fade. Williams' fastball sits at 89-90 mph.

12 (352): Cole Kirschsieper, LHP, Illinois, $125,000
A polished starter, his best pitch is a solid-to-plus changeup. He also locates his 88-92 mph fastball well.

13 (382): Chase Luttrell, OF, Long Beach State, $125,000

14 (412): Torin Montgomery, 1B, Missouri, $75,000
Twice the Marlins have selected Montgomery, first as a Washington prep star in 2019 (35th round).

15 (442): Ike Buxton, RHP, Lipscomb University, $100,000
The 22-year-old's fastball sits at 93 mph and touches 97 mph. He misses bats with a low-80s slider and a changeup.

16 (472): Brett Roberts, SS, Florida State, $100,000

17 (502): Evan Chrest, RHP, Wharton HS (FL)
Did not agree to terms.

18 (532): Spencer Bramwell, C, Colorado Mesa University, $10,000

19 (562): Carmine Lane, C, South Florida, $75,000
The 21-year-old led the AAC in hits (77) and RBIs (54) during the regular season.

20 (592): Jack Gowen, RHP, Georgia, $75,000

How bonus pools and pick values work
Each choice in the first 10 rounds comes with an assigned value, with the total for a club's selections equaling what it can spend in those rounds without incurring a penalty. If a player taken in the top 10 rounds doesn't sign, his pick's value gets subtracted from his team's pool. Clubs near the top of the Draft often spend less than the assigned value for those choices and use the savings to offer more money to later selections.

Teams that exceed their bonus pool face a penalty. Clubs that outspend their allotment by 0-5 percent pay a 75 percent tax on the overage. At higher thresholds, clubs lose future picks: a first-rounder and a 75 percent tax for surpassing their pool by more than 5 and up to 10 percent; a first- and a second-rounder and a 100 percent tax for more than 10 and up to 15 percent; and two first-rounders and a 100 percent tax for more than 15 percent.
