Miami Marlins Wish List for 2016

4.) Backup catcher

J.T. Realmuto all but solidified himself as the Marlins starting catcher last year, but the backup catcher spot was a revolving door of mediocrity. Jeff Mathis, Tomas Telis, Jarrod Saltalamacchia and  Jhonatan Solano handled the duties last year, but none of them proved enough to make the return, while the aforementioned Jarrod Saltalamacchia was waived. The catcher market isn’t great, but someone like a Geovany Soto or a Michael McKenry would provide a respectable backup option to give J.T. Realmuto time off.

    Ozuna should be the 2016 Marlins CF!

    Even if Loria and Boras don’t mix well together, the Marlins should see what Ozuna can deliver with his 5 tools before trading him. Only if Céspedes is signed to replace him, should the Marlins consider trading Ozuna for a #2 SP.

    If Capps remains healthy, he is a closer candidate. It is precisely the 6th and 7th inning RP options the Marlins need to establish.
