Let’s move on to another one: the Dan Haren trade. The Marlins sent Haren to the Cubs in exchange for Ivan Pineyro and Elliot Soto

More from Marlins News

Pineyro, like the rest of the guys, is a pitcher. He is currently at AAA New Orleans and has been bad. But again, small sample size. In 3.2 innings in AAA he has a FIP 7.43 (ERA of 14.73), he posted a career high BB/9 of 7.36.

Elliot is a short stop who was taken in the 15th round of the 2010 draft and is currently in AA for the Marlins. In 37 plate appearances, Soto has a slash line of .125/.243/.188 and a wOBA of .221 along with a pathetic wRC+ of 27. It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure out Soto has struggled in his time with his new organization.

The last trade I’m covering was the trade that sent Sam Dyson to the Rangers for Cody Ege and Tomas Telis. I really liked this trade for the Miami Marlins.

Cody Edge is currently in AA and performing well. In 7.1 innings pitched, Edge has posted a 3.74 FIP (1.23 ERA). He is also striking out 9.82 hitters and walking just 2.45 per nine innings pitched.

Last but certainly not least, is Tomas Telis.

One of the most interesting pieces the Marlins got, in my opinion. Telis has spent some time in the Majors before with the Rangers and currently is in the Majors with the Marlins, but is having trouble finding at bats.

He is 0-3 with the Marlins and only played one game for the New Orleans Zephrys (Marlins’ AAA affiliate). Telis went 1-2 with an RBI and a walk in his lone AAA game.

I can see Telis being a backup to JT Realmuto if the Marlins decide to not bring back Jeff Mathis.
