What to expect from the Miami Marlins leading up to the July 31 MLB trade deadline?
On one hand, they don’t have many attractive veterans to shop around. Nobody on the Marlins ranks among the top 100 most valuable players in the majors this season in terms of FanGraphs’ Wins Above Replacement (fWAR). Several potential trade chips are actually performing below replacement level.
On the other hand, the Fish are one of the few teams fully out of the playoff race in a competitive National League. Potential contenders that need talent upgrades for the stretch run will do their due diligence. Supply and demand is an important factor in determining “fair” value in any transaction.
Marlins players whose names may be connected to trade rumors this month include
Austin Brice (injured), Starlin Castro, Jarlin García, Curtis Granderson, Trevor Richards, Miguel Rojas, Sergio Romo, Caleb Smith and Neil Walker.
