10:06 AM ET 11.17 | The Marlins are willing to part with some of their surplus pitching in hopes of landing impact hitters, but they are not considering moving their No. 2 starter. Nathan Eovaldi is not a trade option. At the General Managers Meetings in Orlando, teams were told Eovaldi was not available. Miami is looking for two or possibly three impact hitters. By not listening on potential trades for Eovaldi, it raises questions if the Marlins will be able to secure a bat the caliber of Mark Trumbo. The Marlins are weighing whether David Freese is a realistic fit at third base.

Pitching is overrated. Even the best can provide a win only every third or fourth game. A position player has the chance to contribute each and every game.

Freese is arbitration eligible the next two years. He will cost some team around $10 million over that time span, or more. Not Marlin's idea of a good time. Besides, , a guy who hit around .260 with 9 home runs and plays third base is not exactly "impact" hitting stuff.

Eovaldi its not a number one or three neither number two,clearly he is not a starter at all,he could be a reliever but that's it,,should the angels inquire about their rookie fernandez?now he is a top starter,
the angels are willing to give in that trade not only trumbo but also,howe kendrick/AYBAR/konger/bourjos/plus some prospect relievers,,,,just for the rookie senssacional pitcher,,,

Trumbo its making only the minimum salary at 500 k per season,practically a bonus for any team,
even if he gets arbitration time the teams won't pay him more than one million next season,,,,

David freese its a good thirdbase men,any good amount of prospects its worthed,but the cards won't let freese walk away that easy..

Trumbo would be the right choice know WHY?he can play the OF firstbase,and when the marlins play the inter league trumbo will give a extra at bat in the DH spot.....

I'd be down for Trumbo on the Marlins

I don't see why the Cardinals would be interested in the Marlins secondary pitchers anyway.

There's a complicated response to this built around evidence and proof and whatnot but ain't nobody got time for that. But the gist of that other, better response is that you are making an incorrect assumption. Several of them, actually.

You can never have too much pitching.
