2. OF Michael Conforto

A versatile outfielder who has experience at all three outfield positions during his career, Conforto is undoubtedly one of the top names available in free agency, and is an option that Miami should consider in centerfield.

While he hasn’t seen time at the position since 2019, Conforto holds a career .985 FLD% across 146 games in center, and is a proven option offensively who is due for a bounce-back year after a down 2021 in which he slashed .232/.344/.384 with 14 home runs. Having spent the entirety of his seven-year career with the Mets so far, Conforto would be an option to start in centerfield for the Marlins, as well as see time in both left and right field occasionally as well.

1. OF Jorge Soler

When looking not only at the remaining Miami Marlins targets, but also at the remaining free agents overall, Soler is certainly among the top overall names available.

The 2021 World Series MVP with Atlanta, Soler is coming off a season in which the 30-year-old hit a combined 27 home runs between the Royals and Braves, only two years after the outfielder/DH led the American League with 48 back in 2019. A player that Miami has been linked to at times this offseason, Soler would undoubtedly give the Marlins a 30-35+ home run bat in the middle of the lineup as a DH, one that could also see time occasionally in right field as well.
