Last Friday brought more wheeling and dealing for the Miami Marlins, as Michael Hill and Dan Jennings proved that a press conference doesn’t get in their way of improving the roster.
Right after Michael Morse, Dee Gordon, and Mat Latos were introduced to the Miami media, the Marlins traded the trio of Nathan Eovaldi, Garrett Jones, and Domingo German to the New York Yankees for infielder Martin Prado and right-hander David Phelps.
Following that move, third baseman and a 2014 fan favorite Casey McGehee was traded to the San Francisco Giants for a pair of right-handers: Kendry Flores and Luis Castillo.
Here is the projected lineup from MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro that we posted on Friday:
Now here is the lineup he projects following the Prado and McGehee trades:
