The Cardinals' first pick of the 2010 Amateur Draft (25th overall), Arkansas' Zack Cox was shipped to Miami at the 2012 deadline, and assuming Miami doesn't change course four more times in the next twelve months, he should see MLB action there this year. A toolsy player with a high-end mix of baseball instincts and work ethic. his bat speed is exceptional, and allows him to turn on even the best heat while also letting him adjust to off-speed pitches with an ease seldom seen in such a young player. He's still a bit rough defensively, but he'll have time to mature as a pro player while waiting for his MLB career to begin. His bat seems close to ready now: he was probably St. Louis's best overall offensive prospect when he was shipped two seasons ago.

Zack Cox was designated for assignment by the Marlins today, as they scrambled to adjust their 40-man roster. Cox, a top prospect only a couple of years ago, has faded due to some scuffling seasons. He'll work on a comeback in the minors, either with the Marlins or elsewhere.
