#42 Matt Dominguez – Florida Marlins
After the promotion of Mike Stanton in 2010, the Marlins system is a little depleted. Dominguez is one of the few bright spots. As a 20-year old in Double-A last season, the sure-handed Dominguez posted a slash line of .252/.333/.411. While the average is notably lower than anyone would like to see in an organization’s top prospect, a great deal of Dominguez’s woes can be attributed to a low hit% and should be corrected as he accumulates more at bats. Nevertheless, his ability to find square contact is evidenced by his 50 XBH’s in just over 500 at bats. Most scouts see his bat as playable at third for the Marlins, and a generous outlook might envision Dominguez establishing himself as an all-star in the occasional season. Regardless of where his bat takes him, his glove work is undeniable. Matt Dominguez is the finest defensive third baseman in the Minor Leagues today.
