Big news came out on Tuesday that the Miami Marlins were open to hearing trade offers on all players except Sandy Alcantara, including first-time All-Star Jazz Chisholm Jr. This announcement was a big surprise to me. I understand why they would sell off older players like Garrett Cooper, Jesús Aguilar, Jon Berti, and a starter like Pablo López due to their extensive list of pitching prospects.
But Chisholm is a young player that broke out before he got hurt this season, with a .860 OPS and 140 WRC+ with 2.6 fWAR through 60 games. He significantly improved his defensive and offensive play, making him look like a cornerstone for this franchise. This report is even more staggering because Chisholm is under team control through the 2026 season, and the team has very little money on the books long-term. He is also one of the more popular young players in the sport.
However, just because the team says they will listen to trade offers on Jazz does not mean they are avidly looking to trade him. It mainly means they will hear what other organizations offer, and if it’s intriguing enough, they will look into more. Given the team’s current position, firmly planted in a rebuild, it is surprising they would even consider giving up a good, young, controllable talent.
Firstly I have some honorable mentions, and then I will present the team that I believe has the best package for Jazz and offers the best fit for him long-term. I also wanted to mention that I verified all the trade offers through baseballtradevalues.com.
