Outfield

Lewis Brinson – Trade

Arguably the hottest hitter in baseball at the moment, Brinson was originally a First Round pick in the 2012 MLB Draft by the Texas Rangers. Later traded in 2016 as part of a multi-player deal to the Milwaukee Brewers, Brinson emerged as a top prospect before being traded to Miami in 2018 in the previously mentioned Yelich trade. Now in year four with the Marlins, it appears that the former top prospect is enjoying a breakout season in 2021.

Bryan De La Cruz – Trade

Another one of the newest members of the Marlins organization, De La Cruz originally signed with the Houston Astros as a free agent in September of 2013. Spending his entire career in the Astros organization, De La Cruz was recently traded to Miami in July as part of the Yimi Garcia trade.

Magneuris Sierra – Trade

The final player on the Miami Marlins active roster, Sierra originally signed with the St. Louis Cardinals as a free agent back in July of 2012. Traded to Miami in the previously mentioned Ozuna deal, Sierra is now in year four in the largest single-season sample size of his young career.
