Marlins rotation looks to improve from 2019 glimpse of the future

The foundation for the Miami Marlins starting rotation was first poured when team owner and CEO Derek Jeter made a small yet meaningful trade with the New York Yankees to bring Caleb Smith to South Florida. He then made a deal with the Cardinals to bring in Sandy Alcantara at the expense of Marcell Ozuna.

Sending Christian Yelich to Milwaukee netted him Jordan Yamamoto and other potential starters on the roster. Dee Gordon went to Seattle and Nick Neidert and Robert Dugger came across the country.
