Law: Marlins' high-risk, high-reward moves are admirable

Law: Marlins betting big on upside of Chisholm (1:33)

Keith Law contends that the Marlins are betting on Jazz Chisholm's upside after acquiring him from the Diamondbacks. (1:33)

One small deal that escaped my attention on Wednesday amid the rush of moves at the deadline was the Rays' trade of former top prospect Jesus Sanchez, still just 21, to the Marlins in a four-player deal that sent reliever/opener Ryne Stanek to Miami and brought Trevor Richards and Nick Anderson to Tampa Bay.

The Marlins seem to be pouncing on high-upside prospects whose stars have dimmed this year, even if that means a lower probability of success than other prospects they might target, with Jazz Chisholm coming over in a trade for Zac Gallen and Sanchez coming for two players they acquired for virtually nothing.
