Miami Marlins

Ah, the Marlins. In a constant rebuild since trading an outfield trio of Marcell Ozuna, Giancarlo Stanton and Christian Yelich — not to mention J.T. Realmuto. The Marlins are actually a fun team to play with and have a lot to work with in a rebuild, as you can pretty much play with all of their best prospects from the get-go.

Right away you’re going to want to look at 2B Jonathan Villar ($8.2M… trade him before you lose him), 1B Jesus Aguilar ($2.6M and then arbitration) and LF Corey Dickerson (2 years at $8.8M). Those are your best older trade pieces who probably aren’t in the Marlins long-term plans. They’re all nice players, I just can’t envision a rebuild without moving them.

The entire Marlins pitching rotation is mid-70s OVR players in their 20s with B potential — Lopez, Urena, Yamamoto, Alcantara, Smith. The best pitching prospect they have is 67 OVR, A potential Sixto Sanchez.

Other than that, they have a good, young catcher in Jorge Alfaro, an MLB-ready 2B in A potential Isan Diaz, already starting and under team control 3B Brian Anderson (26-years-old, 82 OVR, A potential), SS Jazz Chisholm (21-years-old, 65 OVR, A potential).

The Marlins also have a lot of young, 60-70 OVR, A and B potential outfielders for you to pick through:

  • Connor Scott
  • Magnerius Sierra
  • Corey Bird
  • Lewis Brinson
  • Monte Harrison
  • Victor Victor Mesa
  • Harold Ramirez
  • Jesus Sanchez
  • Jerar Encarnacion
  • J.J. Bleday

The Marlins are the rebuild with the most young talent. Most of the rebuild is already done for you actually. Now it’s developing the talent they have, keeping the prospect pipeline rich so that high paid, older players are never a problem for the cash-strapped Marlins, being smart in which veterans you trade for, and maybe making a splash for one big free agent.
