MLB Rumors: Marlins’ Starlin Castro Wants Trade, Not Another Rebuild


Starlin Castro barely has been with the Miami Marlins for a month, but the second baseman already wants out of South Beach.

The 27-year-old was the lone veteran acquired by the Marlins in the deal with the New York Yankees that put Giancarlo Stanton in pinstripes. Initial impressions from the deal pointed toward Miami immediately flipping him — with the New York Mets possibly in the mix — but with spring training just over a month away, Castro still is a member of the Marlins.

And after going through a rebuild early in his career with the Chicago Cubs, he reportedly isn’t interested in doing it again with Miami.

It’s not surprising that Castro wants to play for a contender. He was traded to the Yankees in the offseason before the Cubs won the World Series in 2016, and made it within one game of the Fall Classic with New York in 2017.

Castro hit .300 with 16 home runs and 63 RBIs in 2017. And with the Marlins attempting to shed every bit of salary possible, offloading the $10.8 million he’s due in 2018 certainly would be a productive step in that direction.
