The Miami Marlins made a trade with the new york yankees on Monday acquiring first baseman Garrett Cooper and left-handed pitcher Caleb Smith. In exchange, New York received right-handed pitcher Michael King and $250K of international bonus pool money.

Both of the players received by the Marlins could conceivably be on the big league roster come Opening Day. It has been rumored that Miami’s new ownership will look to shed payroll which includes possibly trading National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton, and both of these players are in their pre-arbitration years.

Garrett Cooper

The 26-year-old Cooper made his Major League Debut on July 14 of this year.

Altogether, he played in 13 games and made 45 plate appearances with the big club. He performed well in his brief time in the majors as he hit .326 with five doubles, one triple, and six RBIs. He did only walk one time while striking out 12.

The first baseman also raked at the plate in his time at AA-AAA in 2017. He played in 83 games (77 at AAA, 6 at AA) and batted .359 with 18 home runs, 30 doubles, and 84 RBIs.

The Marlins currently have left-handed Justin Bour manning first base. The 29-year-old had a career-year in 2017 as he hit .283 with 25 home runs and 83 RBIs in 108 games.

Since Cooper is a right-handed hitter, he could spell Bour at first base on occasion when Miami is facing a left-handed starter. He went 7-19 with two doubles and a triple against southpaws during his brief time in the majors.

Cooper was acquired by the Yankees a day before his major league debut from the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for left-handed reliever Tyler Webb.

Caleb Smith

The 26-year-old Smith made his major league debut with the Yankees on July 17 of this year. He started two games and made seven relief appearances with New York. Altogether, he pitched 18.2 innings and finished with a 7.71 ERA and 1.66 WHIP. He struck out 18 hitters, walked 10, and gave up four home runs.

Smith was much better in his time at AAA in 2017. He pitched in 18 games (17 starts) and went 9-1 with a 2.32 ERA. In 98 innings, he had 97 strikeouts, 28 walks, and a 1.05 WHIP.

The left-hander was drafted in the 14th round in MLB’s June Amateur Draft by the Yankees in 2013.

Michael King

The 22-year-old was drafted in the 12th round by the Marlins in 2016’s MLB June Amateur Draft.

He spent 2017 pitching for Miami’s A minor league team. The right-hander pitched in 26 games (25 starts) and went 11-9 with a 3.14 ERA. He pitched 149 innings striking out 106 hitters, walking 21, and finishing with a 1.09 WHIP.
