Marlins’ Starlin Castro Requests Trade

Published

on

It didn’t take long for Miami Marlins infielder Starlin Castro to request a trade from the team, as the veteran 2nd baseman who was acquired in the December deal that sent slugger Giancarlo Stanton to the New York Yankees has done just that, according to MLB Network insider Ken Rosenthal.

According to the report, Castro “does not want to be a part of another rebuilding process” as he was when he was with the Chicago Cubs from 2010-15.

While it was initially expected that Miami would move Castro, MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro reported last week that the Marlins might ultimately keep him.

Castro is to make nearly $11 million in 2018 and almost $12 million in 2019 and comes with a $16 million club option for 2020.

The Miami Marlins don’t plan on dealing left-hander Caleb Smith as the trade deadline approaches, according to MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro.

The Marlins have been stuck in what seems to be a never-ending rebuild and have traded off a ton of assets in recent seasons, so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see them selling off more talent at the deadline.

Smith, 27, who is currently on the 10-day IL due to some inflammation in his hip, has posted a 3.41 ERA through 66 innings this season.
