They need a good pitcher, an infielder (preferrably a shortstop) and a catcher, among other things.
According to reports surfacing in Miami, they seem open to trading star prospect Triston Casas to get some pitching.
The Miami Marlins are eager to acquire Casas, and they have the pitchers to pull off a trade.
“’The Marlins appear open to dealing a significant player on their roster for first baseman Triston Casas, a former Plantation American Heritage standout .’ – Barry Jackson and Craig Mish in the latest Herald Article,” Marlins writer Kevin Barral tweeted.

Jackson and Mish are hooked with the Marlins and if they say there is buzz, there is buzz.
Miami has lots of talented arms, but aside from Jazz Chisholm Jr., they don’t have a bonafide young stud as far as position players are concerned.
They do have the pitching ammo to bring in any player they want, and they want Casas.
Casas already had a cameo in MLB this past season and has immense power.
If the Marlins want to contend in 2023, they need to bring in some offense: their lineup often looked like a Triple-A unit in 2022.
Casas would be a nice start, but there is still work to be done.
Can they swing a deal with Boston?
