2. Bryan Reynolds
Yet another intriguing superstar caliber centerfielder that would make sense for the Miami Marlins in a trade is Reynolds. However, the question surrounding a potential trade for the 26-year-old is clear – would the Pirates even trade Reynolds?
A first-time All-Star in 2021, Reynolds is coming off a career-year with Pittsburgh where he slashed a combined .302/.390/.522 with 24 home runs, 90 RBI’s, and a major league leading eight triples. A player who posted an impressive 11.6 BB% as well in 2021, a potential trade surrounding Reynolds remains an unknown, but if a trade were to happen, Miami is one of the teams that have the prospect capital to make a trade with the Pirates work.
1. Cedric Mullins
Arguably the top centerfielder that the Marlins could acquire in a trade this offseason is Mullins, a player who could potentially be available. As similar to Reynolds previously however, would Baltimore even consider trading the 27-year-old, a player who is also under control for multiple seasons?
Coming off a career-year in 2021, Mullins slashed a combined .291/.360/.518 with the Orioles with 30 home runs and 30 stolen bases while making his first career All-Star appearance. Similar to Marte previously, a potential trade surrounding Mullins is something we have talked about before, and would arguably provide the biggest impact from any of these six players.
