With Marlins' second baseman Derek Dietrich batting a solid .300 in 16 at-bats, Miami could look to trade him after Rafael Furcal comes back to the lineup.

Rob Brantly is the odd man out at the catcher position. Jarrod Saltalamacchia has a three-year contract while J.T. Realmuto is coming up real fast. If anything, Brantly does not make it past December 2014.

Miami likes what they have in Steve Cishek. However, if the team can get the same production from A.J. Ramos, why not trade Cishek for something valuable? A deadline deal may help a contender win the World Series this season.

The rumor mill is already churning on Jacob Turner. Without any options left, Turner could find himself on another team toward the end of the season if Miami elects to bring up Andrew Heaney in the middle of the year.

Nobody wants to see Giancarlo Stanton go, but in reality, if the right deal comes along the Miami Marlins are going to pull the trigger. It is going to be extension or bust for Stanton, and right now he is looking like a prime trade candidate for the Marlins this season.
