Report: Marlins, outfielder Avisail Garcia agree to four-year, $53M deal

The Miami Marlins have added a veteran bat to their outfield by agreeing to a four-year, $53-million contract with Avisail Garcia, according to multiple reports.

Garcia, 30, spent the past two seasons with the Brewers and hit .262/.330/.490 in 2021 and set career highs with 29 home runs and 86 RBIs.

He was named an all-star in 2017 while with the White Sox and has also played for the Tigers and Rays over his 10-year career.

Well, now they have their cleanup hitter.

Average, turning 31 ... seems odd in this day and age.

For a bad team, Miami's pretty eager to get really old really fast.

Best signing of offseason for Cardinals

I'm not sure who else was available on the market, but for some random reason I looked up the Marlins' depth chart yesterday before this hit the news and at that point they had an outfield of Jesus Sanchez in left, Bryan de la Cruz in centre and Lewis Brinson in right.

Which would you rather have?

Avi Garcia .267/.331/.453 108 OPS+ 4.9 rWAR in 2019-2021, Age 30, will make $56M over the next four years
Adam Duvall .236/.291/.512 107 OPS+ 4 WAR in 2019-2021, Age 33, will make about $9M in 2022, probably $10-14M in 2023

They got Alex Jackson in return for Adam Duvall too.

I don't know much about Garcia's defense, but Duvall seems better than average, with a great arm, in the times I've watched him.
