8. RP Richard Bleier

2021 Season Stats: 2-0, 2.43 ERA, 0.840 WHIP, 2 BB, 27 K

Similar to Detwiler, selling the veteran left-hander Bleier makes a lot of sense for Miami at this year’s Deadline as well. Since being traded to Miami last August, Bleier has simply been outstanding out of the Marlins bullpen, and could potentially be one of the more sought after left-handed bullpen arms available.

Bleier is on-track to by-far surpass his career-high in strikeouts for a single season, while also having only issued two free-passes for the entire 2021 season up to this point. While Bleier continues to excel in the Miami bullpen, trading the 34-year old southpaw is a move the Marlins should do regardless of whether they decide to sell either few or multiple players.

7. RP Dylan Floro

2021 Season Stats: 2-4, 3.00 ERA, 1.333 WHIP, 2 Saves, 17 BB, 33 K

Traded to Miami from the Dodgers in the offseason, Floro has been good playing the primary role in the 8th inning for the Marlins for a majority of the season. Still under team control for the next 2-3 seasons, Floro would be an intriguing option to keep in the Miami bullpen.

However, a player with extensive postseason pitching experience and success in the bullpen with the Dodgers, Floro will certainly gain a lot of attention on the bullpen trade market over the next 2-3 weeks. Similar to Bleier, keeping the 30-year old right-hander would be intriguing, but it makes too much sense to trade Floro, a reliever who will garner a lot of interest.
