Justin Turner, 1B/3B

The Miami Marlins could use an upgrade at 3rd base, and as Neil wrote prior, Justin Turner has the ability to play 1st and 3rd, despite the fact he has played DH most of the year for the Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox might be looking to take on someone like Garrett Cooper who is also on the last year of his contract, as well as a low A prospect.

Justin Turner's biggest ad is his playoff experience and veteran presence he would add to a young clubhouse. Turner is slashing .277/.352/.447 with an OPS at .799 while smashing 10 home runs and driving in 37. He would be a favorite choice of Marlins GM Kim Ng as his strikeout rate is 15.1% and his hard hit and exit velocity numbers are up this year. Turner's versatility and ability to play across the diamond could make him a prime target, as Boston really has no shot of catching either the Tampa Bay Rays or the Baltimore Orioles.
