LF,RF - MIA
Free agent slugger Adam Duvall has agreed to a one-year deal with the Miami Marlins, per Jon Heyman of MLB Network.
According to Craig Mish of Sports Grid, Duvall's contract is worth a guaranteed $5 million. "He will earn $2 million in 2021. His 2022 deal has a $7 million dollar mutual option OR $3 Million dollar buyout." Duvall slugged 16 home runs with an .833 OPS in 57 games with the Braves last season and should hit cleanup for an up-and-coming Marlins squad in 2021. He makes for a solid, late-round OF option in standard fantasy leagues this spring.
Free agent Adam Duvall is getting interest from the Miami Marlins, according to Craig Mish.
Duvall found his power stroke in Atlanta during the 2020 season operating as the Braves DH. He slashed .237/.301/.532 with 16 home runs and 33 RBI over 190 at-bats. He was non-tendered by the Braves in the offseason but the Marlins would be a great fit for the 32-year-old corner outfielder. Mish also noted that the only two players available on the open market with a higher slugging percentage over the last two seasons are Nelson Cruz and George Springer. Competition is likely to be pretty stiff for Duvall's services but the Marlins would make a lot of sense.
Adam Duvall was not tendered a contract by the Braves, prior to the non-tender deadline.
Duvall had a fantastic 2020, hitting 16 homers and slugging .532 in just 209 plate appearances. While the non-tender may be surprising, a reunion between Duvall and the Braves could happen, pending a ruling on if the NL DH is here to stay. He could be an interesting late-round target, depending on where he lands.
OF Adam Duvall (oblique) was removed from the Braves' NLCS roster Tuesday.
Duvall exited Game 1 of the NLCS due to an oblique injury. He was replaced on the Braves' roster by Johan Camargo. Duvall is ineligible to play in the World Series if the Braves are able to advance past the Dodgers. The 32-year-old finishes the 2020 postseason hitting .100 (2-for-20) with one home run and three RBI.
Adam Duvall left Game 1 of the NLCS due to a left oblique injury.
"I think he did it pretty good too," manager Brian Snitker said during the game's broadcast. Duvall suffered the injury while taking a swing during the second inning. Atlanta will likely update his status by Tuesday afternoon. Cristian Pache took over for Duvall.
