Marlins News

Miami’s main goal this winter is to piece together a competitive rotation and add depth at that position. To achieve this, the Marlins are open to discussing trading Marcell Ozuna with other teams. Perhaps they should talk to the Cardinals.

The Rays could also be a good trade partner as Jake Odorizzi might be exactly what Miami is looking for in terms of controllable talent, and Ozuna could be the missing piece for Tampa Bay.

While Ozuna is a Marlins outfielder who could possibly be traded this off-season, Giancarlo Stanton will probably not be.

Christian Yelich has become the seventh different Marlin to win a Silver Slugger award.

Another way to improve the rotation, of course, is through free agency, and Jason Hammel could be a player the Marlins target in the next few months.
