    Recent reports from Craig Mish are saying the Cubs are looking to go very young in their prospect returns on a trade with the Marlins. Normally, I’d think that means Max Meyer. But if not, the Cubs could go for another Darvish-style trade here and continue to fill up the lower levels of their farm with toolsy prospects. Kameron Misner could be the real prize here, another lefty power/speed prospect with what MLB Pipeline reports are even louder tools than Bleday (though of course, Bleday has a far, far higher floor and much lower error bar). If Misner doesn’t figure it out, the Cubs also bring along Connor Scott with a similar speed/power profile. LHP Dax Fulton has been showing improved velocity after coming back from injury, but he’s likely not slated to reach the majors till 2024. Jose Devers has the contact skills the Cubs are seeking to plug into the lineup. Also, Alfaro gets to take over the backstop at Wrigley.

    The Marlins may grimace at giving up so much for one player, but they don’t touch a single top-10 prospect in this deal and they get to hang onto all of their talent who is close to the big leagues. Cubs fans will grown and wonder why Meyer wasn’t involved. And if I’m Jed Hoyer, I’m demanding Max Meyer
