MLB Rumors: Miami Marlins Make Only One Player "Off-Limits" In Trade Talks

The Miami Marlins need offense in the worst way. They own a truckload of young talented pitchers, and are more than willing to trade some of them for some some big bats. But there is one player, not surprisingly, that is completely off-limits in trade talks.

According to MLB Insider Jon Heyman, unanimous 2022 Cy Young winner Sandy Alcantara isn't going anywhere, but the Fish will listen on "almost anyone else."

A slew of promising young arms that they're listening to offers on include:

  • Pablo Lopez
  • Jesue Luzardo
  • Edward Cabrera
  • Trevor Rogers
Lopez, 26, has been the subject of trade rumors for about a year now, and in fact a deal was nearly done at the trade deadline to send him to the New York Yankees. He finished the season with a 3.75 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP.

Luzardo, 25, flashed his immense potential with the Marlins this season after struggling through a dreadful 2021. This season, the Peruvian left-hander pitched to a 3.32 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP with an impressive 10.8 K/9. He allowed just 69 hits in 100 innings pitched.

Cabrera, 24, is also a supremely talented youngster, posting a 3.01 ERA with a 1.07 WHIP this season in 14 starts. 

Rogers, another lefty, had a rough sophomore season in 2022, but was an All-Star and runner-up for Rookie of the Year in 2021.
