"Remember that the Marlins’ pitching talent is almost all imported through trades. Only Trevor Rogers (and behind him, Max Meyer) was a Marlins’ draftee. This team has a lot of experience at bringing in talent and getting the most from it. We’ve seen them give Pablo Lopez a cutter to make him more effective against lefties, and have Sandy Alcantara trade his curve for a changeup to similar effect. The combination of Luzardo’s talent and the Marlins’ staff -- Mel Stottlemyre Jr. in the majors, Scott Aldred in the minors -- could make this trade a big win."
