Miami Marlins

Much like the Tampa Bay Rays, the Miami Marlins are a club who a wealth of pitching but issues up and down their starting lineup. There is no doubt that Harrison Bader would fit right in with the Miami vibes and South Beath lifestyle while making a huge impact for the club.

Outside of Jazz Chisholm, Garrett Cooper, and Jorge Soler, the club has struggled to get anything consistent at the plate from their everyday players. Bader would provide an above average bat with sneaky power and Gold Glove defense to pair with the flair of Chisholm and company.

The dream target would be Pablo Lopez, as the right hander has been subject to rumors this season and is one of the ERA leaders in the National League. Other names like Trevor Rodgers or Elieser Hernandez could bounce back with a move to St. Louis, or one of the many up and coming arms could be of interest to St. Louis.

It seems fitting that years after dealing away Sandy Alcantara for Marcel Ozuna, the club would find a way to deal one of their outfielders for an impact arm from South Beach.
