Marlins Rumors: 3 Players Not Expected Back Next Season

The Miami Marlins are open for business, as they are open to trading at least one of their starters to help improve their roster elsewhere. Therefore, they are likely to be one of the busiest teams in the league this offseason. Here are three players who are not expected back next year.

Pablo Lopez: Pablo Lopez was shopped at the deadline by the Marlins, but they were unable to find a deal acceptable enough to move the 26-year-old. There will be a sizeable market for him, as he had another excellent season in 2022. In 32 games, he had a 10-10 record and a 3.75 ERA. 

Edward Cabrera: Edward Cabrera is another pitcher who the Marlins are open to listening to offers for. The 24-year-old had a solid season that saw him sport a 6-4 record and a 3.01 ERA. However, with the Marlins having such deep pitching depth, they may take advantage of Cabrera's high value to bring in a very good outfielder. 

Jesus Luzardo: The final notable pitcher who the Marlins could part ways with this offseason is Jesus Luzardo. Although he had a losing 4-7 record, he also had a 3.32 ERA, so it's clear that he was solid but just did not get support from Miami's offense. Miami will look to take advantage of his heightened trade value after a career year.
