If we kicked in $30M then he would cost them around $6M a year.
well now that would be awesome.
that said, would the owner want to pay $30 mill plus whatever Yelich is getting paid over the next 3-4 years?
obviously preparing to pursue Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich, who the Fish are reportedly increasingly willing to deal. Just how likely is a deal? Heyman cites a few sources who describe the situation as one in which the club is making Yelich and teammate J.T. Realmuto available in talks. Among the organizations with some level of interest in Yelich, per Heyman, are the Diamondbacks, Braves, and Giants. No doubt there are plenty of others, too, that will line up for both players.
The Marlins don't need a 1B, their current one is arbitration eligible for the next 3 years, through age 31..... He's very popular and shouldn't be expensive. The organization should be looking for a player to grow into that spot, not necessarily take it now
I think the Yelich and Realamuto talks are to just appease them. It should take pitching that is in late development to land either. I don't think either get moved. Yelich may have a chance.
The whole organization is a mess though. Bad farm, bad roster. Lost bats and pitching doesn't appear to be any better.
Best of luck in a purge. Yelich is a nice player. Can run hot/cold with his bat, but typically has a good approach
The Fish won't dump Yelich or Realmuto. Executives around the league feel they'd need to be blown away. The Diamondbacks are probably looking to trade players with one year left on their deals like Corbin and Pollock which shouldn't be attractive to Miami. I think Hazen would try to get a third team involved but it's unlikely.

MIL gave up their #1, #6 & #13 ranked prospect (former D'Back prospect Isan Diaz included) for Yelich. Not a bad haul.
