Miami Marlins

Next on the list is the Miami Marlins. They were leaps and bounds better in 2014 than in the past couple of seasons and could look to get better this offseason. Howie Kendrick would be a major upgrade to current second baseman Donovan Solano. The 26 year old hasn’t shown that he can consistently get on base and Kendrick can fix that problem with one trade.

The Marlins have some good arms on their major league roster that could possibly come back in a trade. The Angels are in need of a left-handed reliever and Mike Dunn could be the right fit. He can face both lefties and righties with a good chance of getting them out. Lefties hit .220 against him in 2014 while righties hit .219, consistent. He could be a great fit for the Angels, but I doubt it would be just him coming back for Kendrick, another piece would have to be added in there.

In the rotation the Marlins picked up Jarred Cosart last season and he pitched well in his time with the Marlins. The good thing about Cosart is that he is controllable. The Angels would get him thru 2020 after arbitration eligible seasons.
