The Miami Marlins have already made two notable moves leading up to the July 30th MLB Trade Deadline flipping outfielder Starling Marte and closer Yimi Garcia. Could there be more on the way?

Obviously the Marlins will be notable sellers as they are likely out of postseason contention, but could they be buyers as well?

With the team ready to contend in 2022, it makes sense that Miami buys while looking toward next season. However, the one clear thing that the Marlins need to target is a big-time bat in the lineup.

Could the Miami Marlins trade for a star hitter?

We recently put out a tweet highlighting the notable pitching depth that Miami currently has in their system. While the Marlins have numerous star young pitchers, not all of them will feature at the big league level.

Because of this, it makes sense for Miami to trade for at-least 1-2 star players who can help them offensively going forward. While unknown when or if the Marlins would pull off a trade for a big-time bat, it certainly feels bound to happen at some point.

So, here are six star-caliber players that the Miami Marlins could possibly trade some of their pitching depth to potentially acquire.
