Marinan isn't a popup prospect in the traditional sense. He's been known among the amateur scouting community for quite a while; Marinan played fot the FTB travel program and participated in key showcase events like PG National and the Metropolitan Baseball Classic. Before his senior year, he was a solid two-way prospect as a physical 6-foot-5 righthander/corner infielder. He pitched in the upper 80s and showed a bit of a velocity boost at MLB's Prospect Development Pipeline showcase in January. | Marinan slowly but surely progressed from there, reaching the mid 90s with his fastball, touching 96 and flashing late life down in the strike zone. Marinan's slider flashes the sharp spin to project as at least an average offering, and he shows the ability to backdoor it to lefties or use it as a chase pitch away from righties. Marinan is a strong athlete with a clean arm action and a stable, repeatable delivery. He is committed to Miami, but has shot up draft boards this spring and is expected to be signable where he'll fit in the draft.
