Predicting 2021-22 Marlins free agent signings

Player and contract figure predictions from dozens of people.

“Please, please, pleeeeeeease sign with Miami” —Jazz Chisholm Jr.
| Katie Stratman-USA TODAY Sports

MLB free agency is underway. The 2021-22 class has a great blend of upside and depth, and the Marlins are already being linked to several of its key players. The general expectation is that the Fish will complete much of their offseason shopping—likely the majority—via trade, but with minimal existing payroll commitments and an urgency to improve, FAs are certain to be part of their plan.

I’ve aggregated predictions from across the internet regarding who the Marlins will sign this winter. Most of the respondents specified contract years and guaranteed dollar amounts. Experts, idiots (I say that affectionately) and everybody in between is represented.

The most frequently mentioned player was Nick Castellanos, followed by Raisel Iglesias, Yan Gomes and Chris Taylor.
