This has not been a good season for the Miami Marlins so far. There's talk of managerial changes and off-season mistakes are becoming more clear. It might be too early to look ahead to the Trade Deadline, but with a 2-11 W-L record, it isn't looking very good going forward to say the least. So...who are the three most likely players to be traded? Who will help improve the struggling farm system?

Three Miami Marlins players are very likely to be traded by the Trade Deadline.


It's pretty obvious, but a free agent to be is always the likeliest player to be traded at the Trade Deadline. This is why Tanner Scott is immediately on the list. It's also not news that relief pitchers tend to especially be in demand at that time. It's unlikely to expect him to sign an extension with the team, so expecting him to be moved is almost a formality at this point.

Tanner Scott currently has an impressive 1.59 ERA with a poor 5.86 FIP. He also has a strong 9.5 K/9 and an abysmal 14.3 BB/9, in 5 games and 5.2 innings pitched. Small sample size, but Scott has typically had control issues throughout his career. He finally put it all together last season, when he led all relief pitchers in WAR with 3.6. He also had a 2.31 ERA/2.17 FIP, with 12.0 K/9 and 2.8 BB/9, in 74 games and 78.0 innings pitched.

Tanner Scott can bring back a good return if he has a strong ERA by the Trade Deadline.
