2. GLAD IS GONE: C JACOB STALLINGS

It's a shame how things can go sometimes. When the Miami Marlins acquired Jacob Stallings in a trade with the Pittsburgh Pirates, the expectation was that he would fix the team's issues at catcher. He was coming off of a .246/.335/.369 batting line in 2021. He provided that in 112 games and 374 AB, being worth a very solid 3.0 WAR, with an elite 2.3 dWAR.

It was a mess for Stallings throughout his time with The Fish. He batted .210/.287/.290, with 7 home runs and 54 RBI, in 202 games and 587 AB. He was worth an abysmal -1.3 WAR. He was basically a liability every time that he stepped on the field. He was so bad, that The Fish had no choice but to non-tender him after the 2023 season.

Jacob Stallings has since inked a deal with the Colorado Rockies, and will probably do a bit better batting at Coors Field. It's still a shame how it worked out for him on The Fish. He was supposed to be the answer at catcher, but instead created more problems. He will not be missed during the 2024 season, not in the slightest.
