6. RP Yimi Garcia
2021 Season Stats: 3-6, 3.44 ERA, 1.235 WHIP, 13 Saves, 12 BB, 34 K
While three other Marlins relievers have been discussed previously, Garcia is the most likely to be dealt, as well as the one that likely lands the biggest potential return. A closer for the first time in his career, Garcia has certainly been up-and-down at times this season.
The veteran right-hander is on-track to put up some of the best numbers of his career, and should garner attention among most all contenders, especially teams looking for help at the closer position. With the recent emergence of Anthony Bender, it certainly feels like a matter of time until Garcia is flipped to a contending team.
5. SS Miguel Rojas
2021 Season Stats: .258 AVG, .322 OBP, .385 SLG, .707 OPS, 4 HR, 24 RBI, 6 SB
This is the point where things could get difficult when it comes to the pure decision making from the Marlins front office. Rojas, undoubtedly one of the most beloved players on this Marlins team, will be a sought-after player at the shortstop position leading up to the MLB Trade Deadline.
Rojas holds a team option for the 2022 season, and while it would make sense to keep the veteran shortstop around to help mentor the Marlins younger middle infielders, Miami could get some offers for the 32-year old that may be too-good to pass up. As mentioned previously, this will be a difficult decision to potentially move Rojas, but there are obvious benefits for both options.
