Free Agent Target #4 Victor Caratini
The Miami Marlins have needed a quality catcher for a while and Caratini is just that. He will bring plenty of experience and the quality behind the dish and would be a huge increase to production. The Marlins could use his hitting for sure as in only 62 games, Caratini hit .259 in 201 at-bats with 7 home runs and 25 RBI. That if he doubles his at bats would put him in a solid position to increase the Marlins production in that position.
The Marlins also would benefit from his defensive abilities as he will be a huge improvement there also. He has thrown out as high as 33% of runners but he also threw out 27% in 2022. In addition, Caratini has a .993 fielding percentage, so you know he will be solid. Will Fortes be a solid catcher as a backup, I believe he will compliment Caratini well and the team will be improved.
Free Agent Target #3 Paul DeJong
Paul DeJong would be a huge add for the Miami Marlins. DeJong had a very sour end to his 2023 season and that means he will likely be cheaper in the offseason, even with a soft shortstop market. DeJong lit things up with St. Louis in the power department smashing 13 home runs and driving in 32. That alone puts him as a better option at short than the Wendle era. He is 7 years into his career and will bring some wisdom as well as one All Star appearance to the roster and will be a great compliment up the middle to Arraez.
