Marlins newest starting pitchers Andrew Cashner and Colin Rea will benefit from a much improved defensive infield as pointed out by @bbtn Alex Cora. Marlins have +14 infield defensive runs saved while the Padres are -18. However, the Marlins grossly over paid in the trade by including last year's first round pick 19-year old Josh Naylor who profiles out to a middle of the order impact bat.
