What the hell is this? How does a solid reliever under club control get traded from only money?
Marlins gonna Marlin
The only way it can be defended is if they land a star international prospect.
Barraclaugh is in decline. He finished with a 4.20era last year and his fangraph fip was 4.98. He really sucked in the 2nd half and lost his closers job.His fastball velocity has fallen from
His K's per 9 innings has fallen from
He turns 29 in May. The Marlins are in a major rebuild where if everything went 100% right won't be good for another 4-5 years. Given how much he's already slipped I think it's safe to say IF the Marlins were a good team 4-5 years from now he wouldn't be a contributor to it. The shot at Victor Mesa is a no brainer.
This to the post just above....and they indeed are going all in on the Mesa's. Apparently, they want to sign with Miami, but the Marlins need to come up with the amount of Int'l signing $$$ to make sure it happens as they are not going to take a hometown discount.
Bearclaw has a career 5.52 BB/9 and has declined every year of his career. Complete trash last year. Good upside for the Nationals but I don't know what people were expecting him to return.
That and the fact that relievers often go from elite one year to out of baseball in 2-3. Extremely volatile position.
He walks a ton of guys too as mentioned. He's worth a shot to possibly rebound, but I don't like his chances.
