Miami Marlins weighing on David Freese, will not trade Nathan Eovaldi


With the Miami Marlins listening to offers for first baseman Logan Morrison, it sounds like they could be thinking about making a trade offer for former World Series MVP David Freese.

Now it’s obvious this team is looking for a corner infielder who can provide not only some solid defense but offense as well. This season for Freese was somewhat of an offensive let down as he only hit nine home runs while plating 60 RBI’s with a batting line of .262/.340/.381.

Last season Freese hit 20 home runs and 79 RBI’s which happens to be his career high in his five year Major League career. So far Freese has been getting some interest from the Yankees as well.

Now while the Marlins are weighing their options on David Freese, according to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com, the Miami Marlins are not willing to part ways with pitcher Nathan Eovaldi.

Eovaldi holds a career 3.84 ERA with a 9-21 win/loss record and 179 strikeouts. He debuted with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2011 and was traded to the Marlins for Hanley Ramirez and Randy Choate.

The Marlins are also interested in Mark Trumbo.
