Marlins Rumors: Miami still Interested in 4 Free Agent Outfielders
The Miami Marlins made their first significant move of the offseason Sunday night by reportedly reaching a deal with free agent outfielder Avisail Garcia. However, it appears that the signing of Garcia does not necessarily rule out Miami going for another top free agent outfielder.
Marlins Rumors: Miami Marlins interested in free agent outfielder Nick Castellanos
According to a report from MLB Network’s Jon Heyman on Monday morning, the Marlins remain in touch with free agent outfielder Nick Castellanos.
Arguably the Marlins top overall free agent target, Miami has been linked to the south Florida native often so far this offseason, but it’s unsure if a deal would happen at the moment. However, it’s obvious that the Marlins are interested in Castellanos.
Another intriguing name that Heyman mentioned as a player to watch is Eddie Rosario. A power hitting left fielder, Rosario is coming off a phenomenal postseason with the Braves, and would be an intriguing option if the Marlins miss on some of the top free agent outfielders.
Marlins Rumors: Miami Marlins interested in free agent outfielder Kyle Schwarber
Heyman also mentioned on Monday morning that the Marlins are in on free agent outfielder Kyle Schwarber.
As mentioned by Heyman however, there are numerous teams interested in Schwarber. Coming off his first All-Star appearance in 2021, Schwarber hit 32 home runs with a career-high .928 OPS combined between the Nationals and Red Sox.
One of the top overall power hitters available in free agency, a potential Schwarber signing seems unlikely, but it’s notable that the Marlins are interested in the 28-year-old.
Marlins Rumors: Miami Marlins interested in free agent outfielder Chris Taylor
Lastly, Heyman also mentioned on Monday morning that the Marlins remain interested in free agent utility man Chris Taylor.
A potential signing of Taylor would arguably make the most-sense for the Marlins of any of these four outfielders through the fact that Taylor could play in center field, something that Heyman also mentioned as well. Taylor is a player that Miami has shown interest in previously, and a potential signing makes sense for arguably the top utility player available in free agency.
After signing Garcia, will the Miami Marlins continue to add to the outfield this offseason?
