Miami Marlins Infield

We’ve already seen that the Miami Marlins pitching staff will be absolutely loaded, but what about the infield? This group has potential to look very different from what it currently is, but there is however one 100% given in this group.

C – Jorge Alfaro

This might be the hardest position to call. Alfaro would be in the final year of his deal, but would he even still be with Miami by then? I’ll say for now that this will be Alfaro, but if he cannot return to the production from previous years, the Marlins may look at other options.

1B – Lewin Diaz

Current first baseman Jesus Aguilar is unlikely to still be with Miami in 2024, making #5 prospect Lewin Diaz an easy choice here. Diaz is an outstanding defensive first baseman, while also showcasing an ability to hit for power on a consistent basis. While he may not hit as high up in the lineup as Aguilar currently is, Diaz should be one of the top young first baseman in the NL in a few years.

2B – Jazz Chisholm

This is the bonafide 100% guarantee in the Marlins 2024 everyday infield based off of the current roster. While he could play either 2B or SS, I’d say Chisholm will remain at second, and turn into one of the best second baseman and overall players in all of baseball. Plain and simple, Chisholm will be a superstar at the top of Miami’s everyday lineup for years to come.

SS – Jose Devers

While the Marlins could be a candidate in the next year or two to either sign or trade for a superstar shortstop, I’ll say that this spot will be Devers’ to lose. The Marlins current #8 prospect displays an ability to hit for contact, as well as a versatile infielder with the ability to play multiple positions. Still only 21-years old, Devers will only continue to develop, potentially into one of the more versatile shortstops in the game.

3B – Brian Anderson

While this position could look different, I’ll say it will still be Anderson manning the hot corner for Miami. Anderson will be in the last year of his contract before entering free agency, and in the prime of his career. If he makes it to 2024 still a member of the Marlins organization, would Anderson potentially re-sign with Miami as well?
