Heaney, Moran highlight Arizona Fall League roster

WASHINGTON -- Two of the Marlins' former first-round draft picks -- left-handed pitcher Andrew Heaney and third baseman Colin Moran -- are among seven players from the organization that have been selected to play in the Arizona Fall League.

The others: pitchers Edgar Olmos, Colby Suggs and Nick Wittgren, infielder Derek Dietrich and outfielder Brent Keys.

Heaney, Olmos, Dietrich and Keys are currently at Double A Jacksonville.


Heaney: After dominating at Single A Jupiter, Heaney -- the Marlins' top draft pick in 2012 -- was promoted to Jacksonville. Overall this season, he is 9-3 with a 1.41 ERA.

Moran: The Marlins' top draft pick (6th overall) in June is starting to heat up at Single A Greensboro, where he is hitting .301 with four home runs.

Dietrich: Received a taste of the majors before his demotion in late July. Hitting .258 w/10 HR for Jax.

Keys: Enjoying a healthy and productive season, most of it at Jupiter. Recently promoted to Jax. Hitting .344 overall this season.

Olmos: Had a cup of coffee with the Marlins but has spent most of the season at Jacksonville, where he is 4-2 with a 2.55 ERA.

Wittgren: Spectacular numbers at Jupiter, where he has gone 2-1 with 25 saves and an 0.83 ERA in 48 appearances. Wittgren was a 9th-round pick in 2012 out of Purdue.

Suggs: Was the Marlins' third-round pick out of Arkansas in June. Currently pitching for Jupiter, where he has gone 1-2 with a 3.94 ERA in 12 relief appearances.


The Marlins have activated third baseman Placido Polanco from the 7-day concussion list.

Great to see Wittgren playing AFL.... He's been simply dominating in Jupiter. Hopefully he turns out to be a good major league player one day. Very nice guy, always courteous with fans and kids at Roger Dean.
