In the unfortunate scenario of Anderson having surgery on his left shoulder, the Marlins were set to pursue a versatile infielder in the form of Eduardo Escobar or old friend Jonathan Villar. Both are entitled to a free agency.

While BA is able to fully repair it without going under the knife, this frustrating year has certainly had an impact on its market value. My updated recommendation would be for the Marlins to approach him with a four-year contract for $ 38 million and a club option of $ 12.5 million for 2026 ($ 2 million buyout).
