3 trade proposals for the Texas Rangers and Miami Marlins
This still may not be enough.
Sanchez was the primary piece in the J.T Realmuto trade and was a top 50 overall prospect at one point. There is apparent tension though. Craig Mish put a spotlight on it here. With Sanchez ready for the Major leagues, he was optioned to the alternative site in a time manipulation move. He then suffered a season-ending injury in his first simulated game. To top things off, the Marlins brass aren’t thrilled with his participation during the rehab process.
This could motivate them to send him out. As prior mentioned, the Marlins have plenty of starting pitching depth. Sanchez would immediately step in as the Rangers’ second or third rotation option, but for the fish, he would be in a four-way battle for the final 2 spots.
In return for Sanchez, a major league-ready starting pitcher, the Marlins land a top 100 prospect, a borderline top 100, and a pitcher with a bright green arrow next to his name. That’s not enough, I know, but it’s a start given the Marlins’ lack of fielding depth in the minors. There is another piece missing, but frankly, that depends if Miami likes what they saw in Adolis Garcia during the first half of the season.
