    Reunion With Brian Anderson

    The Marlins non-tendered Brian Anderson following the 2022 season, due to an anticipated raise in arbitration. It was an understandable decision, but maybe they should entertain the idea of a reunion now. Let us explain why.

    Anderson remains a free agent and the Marlins could use a guy like him. It is likely that the 29-year old would sign for less than he was set to make in arbitration. With spring training getting close, Anderson has to be concerned about not finding a MLB contract at all at this point. There is no denying that Anderson has been a disappointment thus far in his MLB career. He showed promise in 2018-2020, but has fallen off ever since.

    It isn’t just us who is still thinking of Anderson. Earlier this morning, we noticed world renowned Marlins fan and the host of the “Locked on Marlins” Podcast, Peter Pratt mentioned BA in a tweet:

    In 2019, Anderson compiled 20 homers and that’s a number no Marlin had in 2022. Yes, 2019 is a long time ago in baseball terms and there’s no guarantee Anderson will ever approach that number again. However, he is still only 29 and the Marlins have an alarmingly low amount of power in their lineup. Miami also doesn’t currently have a locked-in infield. Jean Segura will be at 2B or 3B and Jazz Chisholm will be at 2B or SS (or CF?). Joey Wendle could start every day and finish off that infield, but his value to the team may be better as a utility guy.

    Could General Manager Kim Ng and the Marlins find their solution to third base in an old friend? Perhaps. However, there have been no rumors about the reunion thus far.
