Miami Marlins Taking Calls On Two Of Their Talented Starting Pitchers

The Miami Marlins' are reportedly receiving calls from around the league involving young pitchers Edward Cabrera and Trevor Rogers..

Known for their collection of young starting pitchers, the Marlins have been fielding interest in Cabrera, a right-hander, and Rogers, a lefty.

There's no immediate pressure for Miami to make a deal, but the strength of offers from other clubs will influence their decision.

Rogers, runner-up for NL Rookie of the Year in 2021, has three years of team control remaining, while Cabrera has five.

However, Rogers' performance has been disappointing since his rookie year, and Cabrera, despite a better track record, has shown inconsistencies and control issues​​.

The current projected rotation includes Jesus Luzardo, Braxton Garrett, Cabrera, Rogers, and Eury Perez.

With this lineup, it's speculated that Luzardo and Garrett, along with Perez, are likely off-limits for trades. This leaves Cabrera and Rogers as potential trade pieces​.

Cabrera is viewed as having higher trade value due to his performance and team control. He has a career 4.01 ERA across 197.2 innings and is not eligible for free agency until 2029.

Rogers, with a 4.12 career ERA, will be eligible for free agency in 2028.

Both pitchers have shown flashes of brilliance and are definitely poised for promising careers in the MLB.

The Marlins, who need to address other positions like catcher, shortstop, and outfield, might consider trading Cabrera or Rogers to fill these gaps.

Given their lack of success in free agency this offseason, the priority is immediate help.

They have a strong rotation but need to balance it with better performance in other areas of the field.

Whichever pitcher can fetch the best return in a trade seems likely to be moved, with the aim of acquiring a player who can be a star-level contributor to the Marlins' lineup​. Photo Credit:  Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports
