2. OF Ketel Marte

2021 Season Stats: .370 AVG, .419 OBP, .556 SLG, .974 OPS, 4 HR, 21 RBI

Similar to Reynolds previously, would the Diamondbacks even consider trading Marte? Under team control for one more season with a team option for the 2023 and 2024 seasons, a Marte trade is unknown if it will happen, and it will also most-likely cost more than Reynolds.

Currently on the IL, Marte was one of the hottest hitters in baseball before suffering an injury, and would instantly become Miami’s arguably most-impactful hitter. If the Marlins want to make the biggest splash when acquiring a long-term center fielder, there might not be a better option than the 27-year old slugger.

1. SS Trea Turner

2021 Season Stats: .322 AVG, .369 OBP, .521 SLG, .890 OPS, 18 HR, 49 RBI, 21 SB

The Nationals shortstop’s name has been floated around over the past couple of days in trade talks, and would arguably be the biggest name available at the deadline. Could Miami potentially make a move for the Florida-native?

Turner is still under team-control for the 2022 season, and would instantly takeover as the Marlins shortstop giving Miami one of the best in baseball. While it’s unsure on what Washington may do with the 28-year old, there is no denying that he would be a true game-changer at the top of the Miami Marlins 2022 lineup.
