Castro to the Indians.

They could use an infielder and well, we need to get Diaz up to the bigs. Don't really care what they send back or if the Marlins have to pay most of his contract.

I'll start with Castro. While his numbers have been at career low levels, a lot due to bad luck, he has shown good numbers against lefties. With that in mind, the Indians, Phillies, and Rangers are all contenders in need of a second baseman to platoon against lefties.

The Indians make the most sense based on their prospects available. Kipnis has been terrible against lefties this year so getting a platoon partner makes sense. They also have had injuries to their rotation so they are probably looking for starting pitchers as well. We can leverage this to a better return.

My proposal:

Trade Richards, Castro and the rest he is owed this year in exchange for 2B/SS Tyler Freeman (mlb.com #86) and RHP Jean Carlos Mejia (Cleveland's #17). Freeman has a 60 hit tool and Mejia is underrated in my opinion with a plus fastball curveball, slider and good control. He has only been a starter for the past 2 seasons but has posted K/9 of over 9 and BB/9 of under 2.5 as a starter.

Kipnis has been terrible against lefties. Plus the Indians have been bad against lefties as a team so he could come off the bench late in ballgames against lefty relievers. Perfect fit for them in my opinion.

By far the most tradeable assets that the Marlins have that you don't see the team building around are the relievers. By baseball reference WAR totals, If you take out Conley and Chen, the Marlins are actually ahead of the Brewers, Nationals, Dodgers, Twins, Diamondbacks, Phillies, Braves, Red Sox, Cubs, and Astros. Most or all will be buyers at the deadline so the Marlins could have a good opportunity to pillage some farm systems.

Good job opening this thread about what we should do at the deadline. We were long overdue for a thread like that.

This is not a thread about what we should do at the trade deadline. We already have one of those. This is a thread about suggesting trades for the Marlins to consider. See the difference?

If you deem it irrelevant, why take the time to reply?
