2. 1B/RF Garrett Cooper
2021 Season Stats: .291 AVG, .387 OBP, .481 SLG, .867 OPS, 9 HR, 32 RBI
Cooper will garner some of the most interest among Marlins players over the next 2-3 weeks, but would the club trade the 30-year old? Cooper has been outstanding this season for Miami, and could potentially be emerging as a big part of the Marlins immediate future.
Should the NL adopt the DH in the next year-or-two, Cooper would be a perfect option for the Marlins at the position. However, if Miami decides to flip the veteran slugger now, they could potentially get a sizable return for Cooper, who is under team-control for two more seasons.
1. CF Starling Marte
2021 Season Stats: .272 AVG, .383 OBP, .414 SLG, .797 OPS, 6 HR, 18 RBI, 17 SB
The biggest potential trade piece that the Marlins should consider selling is Marte. While there are questions on whether or not Miami will re-sign the veteran outfielder, they should trade Marte, a free agent at seasons end, if they do not plan on retaining him.
Despite missing time with an injury early-on in the season, Marte is on track to have one of the best years of his career. The 32-year old outfielder will be one of the most sought-after free agents overall this July, and could attract the highest return for the Marlins, should they decide to trade the star outfielder.
The Marlins have the potential to be one of the most active teams leading up to the 2021 MLB Trade Deadline. Should they choose to sell, there are at-least 10 clear options that they should consider moving for the right offer.
