In February, right before spring training, the Marlins addressed one of their biggest needs by signing outfielder Adam Duvall to a one-year, $5MM deal with a mutual option for the 2022 season. Overall, the addition has paid off so far for the Fish.
Traditional analysts would find that difficult to agree with considering that Duvall got to Sunday’s game with a poor .205/.248/.425 slash line and a .673 OPS. Also, the veteran slugger has struck out 70 times across 200 at-bats so many of his outs have been completely unproductive. If you’re judging Duvall on those numbers, the debate is gonna end pretty quickly.
