This is part two to my previous article about Miami Marlins free agents and their chances of coming back. I'll ne analyzing the three remaining free agents and their chances of being re-signed by the team. Free agency is of course only a part of the process, as trades will be explored as well. Are you ready to start the list?
Three Miami Marlins free agents and their chances of being re-signed by the team.
3. RP MATT MOORE
I'll start the list with the last relief pitcher free agent who I will be discussing in this two-parter. Matt Moore didn't spend much time with the team, and was ineligible from pitching in the playoffs. That said, he provided the Miami Marlins with a 0.00 ERA/3.26 FIP, with 6.8 K/9 and 2.3 BB/9 in just 4 games and 4 innings pitched. Overall, between the Los Angeles Angels, Cleveland Guardians and the Miami Marlins, the 34 year old lefty produced a 2.56 ERA/3.73 FIP, with 10.3 K/9 and 2.6 BB/9, in 50 games and 52.2 innings pitched.
What will Matt Moore be able to get on the open market? I'm thinking he can get 2 years and $5-6 million a year. It shouldn't be a prohibitive price for The Fish, if there's any interest in bringing him back. Considering we now have Peter Bendix in charge instead of Kim Ng (who acquired Moore), it's hard to say what the interest will be. My guess is that it could go either way at this point.
