The Miami Marlins trade for Jarred Cosart last week at the trade deadline is going to be one that we cannot fully judge for a couple of seasons, when we see what kind of player Colin Moran becomes. I believe he is the key of the deal for both sides.
If in four years, Moran finds his power stroke and continues to be a player that can winning batting titles, the Marlins could be regretting this deal big time, especially if Cosart is their 5th starter or forced out of the rotation by the Marlins other young arms.
Moran, unlike Matt Dominguez could prove to be the third baseman that got away from the Marlins.
It was well known that the Miami Marlins had a decent amount of pitching depth and lacked in the position player department. That made the Jarred Cosart trade that sent Colin Moran and Jake Marisnick to the Astros even stranger.
