With Marlins already selling, here are four players Mariners could target in a trade

The Miami Marlins are not a good baseball team. They have started the season 10-28 and just traded their best player, Luis Arraez to the San Diego Padres. Jerry Dipoto should call the Marlins and try to pry one of their better players away.

Mariners Trade Target #2: 2B/CF Jazz Chisholm Jr.

According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today the Marlins could look to trade Jazz Chisholm Jr. Jazz Chisholm has always been a fascinating player to me. He hasn't fully put it together as he has battled injury but he could be an upgrade if Luke Raley and Mitch Haniger don't get it going in the outfield. Canzone is still likely 3-4 weeks out from returning, and going after Chisholm could provide an immediate upgrade to a corner spot.

Jazz Chisholm isn't a free agent until 2027, so he still has two years and some change of control. So he will cost more in a trade than most of the players on this list. The question here is if you want to lock up another OF spot knowing that you have a couple of guys in the minors (Clase, Taylor, Marlowe, etc) who have gotten a taste of the bigs and are chomping at the bit for a chance to return.

In 2024 he has a slash line of .248/.329/.421, with 5 home runs, 20 RBI, and 8 stolen bases. He would be an awesome get but I am not sure the Mariners will want to pay the price to get him,
