It’s never too-early to talk about potential free agent targets for the Miami Marlins, is it?
As we begin to flip toward the final month of the 2022 regular season, the attention for the Marlins also begins to turn toward what is shaping up to be an important offseason for the organization.
Well, why not take a way-too-early look ahead to the 2022-23 free agent class, see which names could be available, and identify a few names that the Marlins should consider targeting this offseason?
5 way-too-early Miami Marlins free agent targets for the 2022-23 offseason
5. CP Taylor Rogers
It makes sense that the Miami Marlins could be in the market for a veteran closer this offseason, with Edwin Diaz and Kenley Jansen as the clear top two names available. However, should the Marlins opt to spend less on the closer position compared to some other spots on the roster, a name like Rogers would be an intriguing option.
Traded to Milwaukee from San Diego at the trade deadline, Rogers is not currently acting as the Brewers primary closer, but did collect 28 saves earlier this year with the Padres. Having collected 75+ saves since 2019 as well, the 31-year-old left-hander could be a potential option on a one-to-two year deal, and is a proven option in the back-end who holds a career ERA just over 3.00.
