The Marlins haven’t made the postseason since 2003, and that trend looks to continue this season. The Marlins are currently 42-51 and 14.5 back of the divison leading Washington Nationals. The White Soxs finally decided to sell last season after underperforming in 2014 and 2015, and it has worked out great for them as they now have 10 top 100 prospects in MLB.
The Marlins could potentially bring in the same haul as the White Soxs brought in. The Marlins have a great offense but a below average pitching staff. The Marlins have a team ERA of 4.69 which ranks 24th in the Majors. They are in a tough NL East where the Nationals are one of the best teams in the Majors, the Braves and Phillies are in rebuilding mode and the Mets are a solid team when healthy. The Marlins haven’t finished 2nd in the division since 2009 and it was the last time they’ve finish the season over .500.
According to Baseball America the Marlins have the 30th ranked farm system the worst in the majors. That could quickly turn around to being the best. They have the players to bring in strong hauls from Giancarlo Stanton, Marcell Ozuna, Christian Yelich, Dee Gordon, Justin Bour, J.T. Realmuto, A.J. Ramos and Dan Straily an co trading these players would start their rebuild with a bang. By the end of the deadline, the Marlins could end up with one of, if not the best farm system if they decide to go all in.
