In a bit of very disappointing news in a slow free agency, a former Brave that fans are hoping to see back in Atlanta could be on the move soon.
Per sources Marlins are interested in FA OF Adam Duvall. Solid RF, big power, good fit for Miami. Slugged .545 the past two seasons. Only players with a higher slug % on the open market over 2019-20 : Nelson Cruz & George Springer. Lots of teams interested in him.

Duvall was surprisingly non-tendered by Atlanta after coming through in some heroic moments on more than one occasion, and Atlanta fans were hoping a deal could be negotiated to keep him with the Braves. With almost zero news on the free agency, trade, or Marcell Ozuna front — Duvall was seen as a seriously viable backup plan. Now, there’s a division rival on his heels, and I can’t say I blame him for taking another opportunity if given the chance. Miami made the playoffs last year and Duvall would be a huge improvement to their roster.
