Miami is going to sleep without its best hitter

By the time baseball fans wake up, they will see that something is missing in the City. An offensive pillar and predominant figure in the Miami Marlins He was traded to another team, far from home.

The Venezuelan Luis Arraez He was traded to the San Diego Padres for three prospects.

Craig Mish of the Miami Herald added that the Marlins receive outfielder Dillon Head (Parents' No. 6 prospect), outfielder Jakob Marsee (No. 9 prospect) and first baseman Nathan Martorella (No. 13 prospect). The other piece of change is Korean pitcher Woo Suk-Go; who signed for two years and $4.5MM from the LG Twins of the KBO and played for the AA branch of the Padres.

Known for his offensive contribution to the Miami team, Arráez won the batting title in the 2023 National League season. Thanks to that recognition, he managed to combine both achievements consecutively, after achieving it with the Minnesota Twins in 2022 in the American League.

Miami changed its lineup minutes before the first pitch in Oakland, removing Arráez, 27, from the first shift.

Instead, he made his way through the visitor dugout at the Coliseum shaking hands and offering hugs and goodbyes with his now-former teammates, coaches and staff.

He should provide an instant spark to the Padres lineup. San Diego trails the first-place Dodgers in the talented NL West.

Arraáz was batting .299 with five RBIs and had scored 22 runs with a .347 on-base percentage in 16 games during Miami's 9-24 start.
