LILY Jan 9

The Marlins have already traded two-thirds of their outfield this winter, and they are listening to offers to possibly complete the trifecta. Though not coming off an MVP season like Giancarlo Stanton or a .924 OPS campaign like Marcell Ozuna, Christian Yelich is the most valuable trade chip of the three in terms of the prospect pieces that can be brought back to the rebuilding Fish Aaron Judge Women Jersey because of the team-friendly nature of his contract. Yelich is under team control for a grand total of $58 million for the next five seasons (counting a $15 million option for 2022). That's bargain-bin stuff for a potential superstar who brings a sweet swing and good defense and baserunning. So … what's his trade value? One comparable to Brett Gardner Women Jersey work off of here is the Adam Eaton trade from last winter. It's not a perfect comparison, as Eaton was entering his age-28 season, whereas Yelich is entering his age-26 year. But consider this: Thanks to stellar defense that earns plaudits from a variety of advanced metrics, Eaton was also coming off a 6.2-bWAR season, while Yelich has been worth an average of 4.2 bWAR over the last four years. And like Yelich, Mickey Mantle Women Jersey Eaton came with five years of what was considered team-friendly control. Eaton landed the White Sox three of the Nationals' top 10 prospects, as determined by MLB Pipeline at the time -- Lucas Giolito, Reynaldo Lopez and Dane Dunning (Giolito and Lopez were both in the Top 100 overall). The Marlins recently dealt Ozuna, who is two years away from free agency, to the Cardinals for four prospects, only two of whom (Magneuris Sierra and Sandy Alcantara) ranked in the Cards' Top 10 and Didi Gregorius Women Jersey none of whom ranked in MLB Pipeline's Top 100 overall. The Fish will certainly be looking to exceed that return in a trade for Yelich, given the years of control involved. How many teams are interested in Yelich? It would be easier to list the teams that don't have a need for a controllable, impact bat like this. But here are 10 teams rumored to have shown interest and what it might take to land him. Consider these starting points. Perhaps another player would be added to these concepts to round out a deal, especially with so many teams involved. But hopefully this provides a general idea of how a given team might motivate the Marlins to make a deal.
