With the Miami Marlins set to make multiple different moves to the roster in the offseason, is it possible that one of those moves could be acquiring a star-caliber free agent?

As the focus of baseball overall slowly begins to shift toward what will be an action-packed offseason, one of the biggest talking points has been this year’s free agent class. One of the best in recent memory, this offseason’s free agent class is loaded with star-caliber players, a few of which would be intriguing options for the Marlins.

Will the Miami Marlins pursue a superstar free agent this offseason?

This will take a look at this offseason’s free agent class, and look at five potential “dream” free agent signings that the Marlins could potentially make. Yes, there is always a possibility that none of these will happen, but it would be a massive win for the Marlins offseason however if any actually did happen.

Before we begin however, there are three players who would’ve been on this list, but now seem unlikely with the Marlins recently re-signing shortstop Miguel Rojas. As you’ve likely guessed by now, those three players are indeed all shortstops – Carlos Correa, Corey Seager, and Trevor Story.

Here are five potential dream free agent signings for the Miami Marlins in the offseason, each of whom would provide a massive instant-impact for the Marlins in 2022 and beyond, starting with No. 5.

5. UTL Chris Taylor

If the Marlins were to add a player who is capable of playing multiple positions, you won’t find a better available free agent than Taylor. Coming off his first-ever All-Star appearance during the 2021 season, Taylor saw action in 148 games with the Dodgers during the regular season in which he slashed .254/.344/.438 with 20 home runs, 73 RBI’s, and 13 stolen bases.

A player who provided some massive moments for Los Angeles during the Dodgers 2021 postseason run, Taylor can essentially play anywhere in both the infield and outfield seeing time everywhere but catcher and first base this past season. The 31-year-old would undoubtedly provide a massive potential impact in Miami for a Marlins team that could use a player with the versatility of Taylor after a year full of injuries last season.
