Marlins and Twins Reportedly Discussing Major Trade


As we approach February when pitchers and catchers will finally be reporting to camp and baseball will slowly begin firing up Spring Training for the new season, many teams are looking to add to their rosters, plug up some possible holes, and solidify their teams in time for games.

The Marlins and Twins are two such teams, as The Athletic's Dan Hayes reports that the clubs are continuing to discuss a trade that would see the Marlins get Luis Arraez and the Twins delving into the Marlins' massive pitching depth in an attempt to shore up their rotation.

Jon Heyman of the New York Post had reported last week that the two clubs were discussing a possible trade with Arraez and Pablo López, but the Twins appeared to be uninterested in parting with their star infielder in that deal.

Hayes says that the Twins are still hesitant to pull the trigger on a direct swap of the two players, but there have been talks about making a larger deal work that would see multiple players changing teams. The Marlins have expressed willingness to part with many of their young arms, including Jesús Luzardo, Trevor Rogers, and Edward Cabrera.

The deal does not appear to be coming to a conclusion any time soon, but it is interesting to note that the Marlins have continued to leave communications open as they have with several teams this offseason, especially in regard to their pitchers.
