As of Thursday, these Marlins players carry the highest surplus value according to Baseball Trade Values’ median estimate: Pablo López (66.8), Sixto Sánchez (63.6), Sandy Alcantara (47.0), JJ Bleday (35.7), Trevor Rogers (34.8), Jazz Chisholm Jr. (33.9), Max Meyer (29.3), Brian Anderson (19.8), Edward Cabrera (16.0), Elieser Hernandez (15.4), Jon Berti (9.9), Miguel Rojas (8.1), José Devers (8.0), Peyton Burdick (7.6) and Jesús Sánchez (7.6).
Potential midseason trade chips Corey Dickerson & Adam Duvall actually have negative value unless the Marlins would be willing to pay some or all of what remains on their contracts.
Jesús Sánchez, the most productive hitter in Minor League Baseball so far in 2021, is a logical call-up candidate for the next Marlins road trip. That’s thanks in part to series against the Red Sox (May 28-30) and Blue Jays (June 1-2) at American League ballparks, which enable them to use the designated hitter spot.
