Marlins pick first baseman Carcaise in 14th round
Miami selected Florida Tech first baseman Scott Carcaise in the 14th round of the 2013 MLB First-Year Player Draft with the 412th overall pick.
Carcaise was the big bat in the Panthers' lineup as a junior, earning a spot on the All-Sunshine State Conference second team after leading the league with 10 home runs.
He led Florida Tech in multiple offensive categories, including slugging percentage (.563), on-base percentage (.441) and RBIs (37). He recorded 10 multi-hit games and 11 multi-RBI games.
Carcaise was the second first baseman taken by Miami after Cal State Fullerton's Carlos Lopez was selected in the 10th round.
Fourth-rounder K.J. Woods, an outfielder, could potentially switch to first.
