Miami, FL – The Miami Marlins have acquired Jake Burger from the Chicago White Sox in exchange for minor league pitcher Prelander Berroa.

Burger, 27, is a third baseman who was drafted by the White Sox in the second round of the 2017 MLB draft. He has hit .237 with 25 home runs and 53 RBIs in 87 games this season.

Berroa, 22, is a right-handed pitcher who was drafted by the Marlins in the 11th round of the 2021 MLB draft. He has a 2.70 ERA with 78 strikeouts in 65 innings in Single-A and High-A this season.

The Marlins are looking to add some power to their lineup, and Burger fits the bill. He has the potential to be a middle-of-the-order bat for the Marlins. Berroa is a promising pitching prospect, but he is not yet ready for the major leagues.

The trade gives the White Sox some pitching depth, and it also frees up playing time for Andrew Vaughn at third base. Vaughn is a top prospect who is expected to be a star in the major leagues.

The trade is a win-win for both teams. The Marlins get a power bat, and the White Sox get some pitching depth. It will be interesting to see how both players perform in their new homes.
