How Miami Could Pull off a Matt Olson Trade

How Miami Could Pull off a Matt Olson Trade

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports Oakland’s first baseman is set to hit free agency following the 2023 season. Thus far this offseason, the Miami Marlins have made good on their promise to open up the checkbook in pursuit of a postseason berth.

They are betting against Kameron Misner putting all of his tools together, and that could come back to haunt them long term, but Misner was doubtful to make much of an impact next season at the major league level regardless. I attended the Jacob Stallings introductory virtual press conference. Extremely humble guy. Plenty of quotes from him in Jordan McPherson’s Miami...

In a fascinating one-for-one swap, Craig Mish reports that the Marlins are trading toolsy outfield prospect Kameron Misner to the Rays for infielder Joey Wendle.
