    So, it has come to my attention early on today that Trevor Rosenthal has been making quite a buzz recently in the trade rumors, and that a certain team residing in South Beach has some interest in not only him but also the other Royals reliever candidates as well. If the rumors are true, then lets “dive in” towards breaking down this possible trade scenario between the Royals and the Marlins.

    First, let’s take a little “swim” through the side of the Marlins. As it stands right now, the Marlins currently occupy second in the NL East, putting them in a perfect spot to not only make the playoffs but also be probable buyers this deadline. Due to this, the bullpen will likely be their primary position of interest. Even weeks after the team’s COVID-19 outbreak, the Marlins are still without nearly a dozen of their pitchers, mainly coming from their bullpen. But even with their pitchers possibly coming back soon, they still have room to upgrade. Enter the “Brothers Royal,” Rosenthal, Holland, and Kennedy. These three relievers have been intriguing teams for a while now, I now believe it’s the time to take advantage of the opportunity and buy some. So, by taking a page out of the Brandon Workman trade, I decided to send two relievers (i.e. Rosenthal and Holland) to the Marlins.

    Now then, let’s shift over to the Royals side shall we? Prospect-wise, its obvious that Miami will not be trading over any of their top 15-20 prospects to the Royals, but taking inspiration from the Workman trade, they could decide to trade one of their lower end prospects as well as a young experienced player to the team. Now the reason I chose these two was because I one – the Royals are currently in the rebuild process and they need young players who would fit perfectly into their system, and two – these two players could possibly help with their two biggest positional needs -outfield and potentially starting pitching. So in case if any of you were confused as to why I chose Lewis Brinson and Jordan Hollaway in this trade, that’s the reason why.

    Like most of my trades, I tend to focus on the realistic possibilities when going into a trade so if like this trade or have any other opinions, leave a comment and I’ll be happy to listen to you.

    – Sincerely Yours, Drew2000
