2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2010

After an awful offensive season as an 18-year-old at rookie ball, Skipworth posted almost identically awful numbers as a 19-year-old at Low-A. His tools still give him plenty of upside, and there's no indication yet that he won't be able to stay behind the plate, but the Marlins need to think about having him repeat a level to let him get at least a taste of success as a pro.

2009

The Marlins' first round pick in 2008 had some major adjustment problems in his first exposure to pro ball, but that's not unheard of for an 18-year-old catcher. Skipworth isn't going to go marching Matt Wieters-style up the Florida depth chart any time soon, but he's got a ton of potential on both offense and defense. Just be prepared to invest a few years in him before you see any kind of fantasy payout on that potential.
