With the MLB regular season roughly three weeks away, two-time World Series champion Yuli Gurriel remains one of the top names on the free agent market. Although the veteran may not have much time remaining in his MLB career, Gurriel has continued to remain productive as he ages.
Last season with the Houston Astros, he hit .242 with eight home runs and 53 RBIs. While 2022 was a bit of a down year, he was electric in 2021, hitting .319 with 15 home runs and 81 RBIs.
While it is still impossible to rule out a return to the Astros, there is one team actively pursuing the veteran infielder: the Miami Marlins.

Even as Spring Training continues to roll along, the veteran first baseman and the Miami Marlins appear to be the best fit for one another. According to multiple reports, the Marlins reportedly offered the 38-year-old a one-year, $3 million deal, but pulled the offer after he waffled for a week.
