The Miami Marlins have a big hole in the lineup to fill with Jorge Soler opting for free agency. The Marlins need his production at the plate and a middle of the lineup hitter so who could be out there that could fill that role? The Miami Marlins have been rumored to be interested in a Soler reunion, but other teams are trying to sign him here soon.
Soler's departure means the Marlins need to find a big bat
Soler’s production of 36 home runs, 75 RBI, and his .250 average will be missed. If he comes back and can repeat that production then the Marlins will be in good shape. While other MLB teams are trying to coax Yamamoto to join them the Marlins need to strike first and sign players to fit their needs.
If the Marlins can swing a bigger contract then more teams and names will be available to them. As it were it seems a trade is more likely considering the candidates out there. Here we will look at a few names that might be a fit, you decide if there are better trade options or better free agents. The free agent big money names are almost all spoken for, so the Marlins need to pounce now on a player if they are available and the Marlins have interest. Since Ohtani is signed, the focus is to sign Yamamoto. Once he is signed names could be coming off the free agent class quickly, as teams finish out their offseason.
