As the Marlins look to go on a much deeper postseason run, Miami has become more open to trading from their pitching.

This winter features no shortage of impact free agent pitchers, as even though Aaron Nola's and Sonny Gray's names have come off the board following their pacts with the Phillies and Cardinals, respectively, the likes of Yoshinobu Yamamoto, Blake Snell, and Jordan Montgomery remain available to buyers. Should the starting pitching-needy teams miss out on the trophy fish of this year's free agency, they could turn to the other big fish in the pitching trade market pond: the Marlins. For years now, it feels like Miami has been trying to deal from its deep reserve of starting pitchers to upgrade their offense. This winter is no different, with electric starter Edward Cabrera coming up in trade rumors.

Sure, many MLB organizations are structured to have both a president of baseball ops and a GM, but to suddenly shift to such a hierarchy after the first female GM in MLB history takes your woeful team to the playoffs felt stupid at best, and really, really sexist at worst. Now, the Marlins have done themselves one better, hiring former Giants' manager Gabe Kapler as an “assistant GM.”
