Marlins’ 2020 success means lowest draft position in a decade

The 60-game MLB regular season was not long enough to be fully representative of each team’s true ability, but to paraphrase a league spokesperson, “close enough!” Alex Speier of The Boston Globe was first to confirm on Monday that the 2020 reverse standings will be used to determine the 2021 MLB Draft order. That leaves the Marlins with the No. 16 overall pick.

During the first three years under new ownership, Miami held the 13th (OF Connor Scott, 2018), fourth (OF JJ Bleday, 2019) and third (RHP Max Meyer, 2020) slots.
