RANKED: All 30 MLB Teams’ Batting Lineups From Worst To Best

29. Miami Marlins


1. Cameron Maybin, RF
2. J.T. Realmuto, C
3. Starlin Castro, 2B
4. Justin Bour, 1B
5. Martin Prado, 3B
6. Derek Dietrich, LF
7. Lewis Brinson, CF
8. Miguel Rojas, SS

The Marlins infamously spent the 2017 offseason gutting a majority of their roster. In total, the Marlins gave up the 2017 NL MVP (Giancarlo Stanton), the 2017 Major League steals leader (Dee Gordon), a 2017 All-Star and Gold Glove winner (Marcell Ozuna), and a former first-round pick and lifetime .290 hitter (Christian Yelich). In return, Miami received a bunch of prospects and exactly one player that will be featured in their lineup in 2018. Make no mistake, this team is in a rebuilding phase, and offense will be hard to come by in the interim.

Castro made starts all across the order for the Yankees last year. He settled in around the 5th spot, and that might be where he eventually ends up for this young Marlins team. Bour showcased his pop during the Home Run Derby last season. He hopes to build upon his career year from 2017. Same goes for Realmuto, who will likely begin the year on the DL.

Outside of that, there’s little for Marlins fans to be excited about.
