MLB Trade Rumors: 4 Notable Names Listed as Trade Candidates for Miami Marlins

We're still a ways away from the trade deadline, but there are some teams that already appear certain to be clear sellers, not the least of which, the Miami Marlins. With a 9-24 start, the Fish are sinking fast, and must be starting to gauge the market value of some of their players. 

Let's have a look at four notable names that the Marlins could deal for some significant assets:

Luis Arraez

Being a two-time batting champion and two-time All-Star must be worth something on the trade market, right? The second-baseman has done nothing but hit since arriving in South Florida over a year ago from the Minnesota Twins in return for Pablo Lopez. Arraez batted an incredible .354 last season with a .393 on-base and a 132 OPS+. After a slow start in 2024, he's up to .295 now. 

Jazz Chisholm

This one sounds like a shocker to be on this list. But baseball insider Robert Murray suggests that the Fish could be ready to move on from the exciting young center fielder, perhaps fed up with his constant injury troubles. He has stayed healthy this season so far, but is batting just .230 with a .701 OPS. He still has two more years of team control after this one before becoming a free agent in 2027. 

Jesus Luzardo

This is a name that's been on the trade market since last season. The Marlins have so many prized young pitchers that many feel that Luzardo is a surplus they could trade from. But some serious injuries have wiped out two of their best rotation arms, Sandy Alcantara and Eury Perez for the season, so how quick they'll deal Luzardo remains to be seen. Plus, they'd be selling low, as he's off to a 6.58 ERA thus far this season and is coming back from a mild flexor strain.

Josh Bell

Talk about selling low. The slugging first baseman is having a disastrous season thus far, batting .183 with just three home runs. His power has been 'off' the past couple of years, with just 17 dingers in 2022 and 22 long balls last season.

A lot can happen between now and the trade deadline at the end of July, but it's quite likely that the Marlins will be peddling these names, and more, on the marketplace.
