As the talk surrounding the late-July MLB Trade Deadline continues to build, the Miami Marlins are quickly becoming one of the biggest teams to watch based on what they will do.
The Miami Marlins could go either way at the Deadline. Will they buy, or will they sell? To be honest, you’re guess is as good as mine at this point.
Because of this, the next 2-3 weeks will be massive for the 2021 edition of the Marlins. Upcoming series’ against the Pirates and Rockies are winnable, while the 9-games after that against the Braves, Cardinals, and Cubs will be tough.
In fact, the Marlins Trade Deadline plans could become clearer as soon as next week. If Miami goes under .500 for the next 2-3 weeks, the writing may already be on the wall for a team that has struggled to get 100% healthy this season.
Now could the Marlins end up buying at the Deadline? Yes, in fact that is what I currently expect them to do, as well as selling.
The Miami Marlins are one of the more interesting teams to watch.
The Marlins are in an interesting situation where they have a playoff caliber roster, but also have top prospects ready to make an impact that will make them even better. Could they still sell those players in order to acquire 1-2 star caliber players? It’s possible, and based on early trade candidates, it’s obvious that Miami will be getting some calls regardless.
Earlier this week, MLB Trade Rumors posted their rankings of the current Top 40 most likely trade candidates leading up to this years deadline. While this will certainly not be the last ranking like this that we may see, it did reveal one thing however. The Marlins already have multiple players as potential top trade candidates.
