Players that Played for Cubs and Marlins

Baseball Players who Played for Marlins and Cubs

There is a good chance that if you’ve found this page then you’re playing the Immaculate Grid.

That also means that today’s grid has asked for players that have played for both the Miami Marlins and Chicago Cubs.

And, it also means that you’re probably stuck on this particular box and you’re looking for a little help. Sound about right so far?

Well, good news, you’re in the right place.

I’ve done some research and have found a player who played for both the Marlins and the Cubs.

Moises Alou

Moises Alou, who played from 1990 to 2008, is best known for his time as an outfielder with the Montreal Expos, Florida Marlins, and Chicago Cubs.

Over his 17-season career, Alou compiled over 2100 hits, 332 home runs, and a .303 career batting average. He was named an All-Star six times (Expos, Marlins, Astros, Cubs, Giants) and played a key role in the Florida Marlins’ 1997 World Series championship.

His best statistical season might have been in 2000 with the Houston Astros when he hit .355 with 30 home runs and 114 RBIs.

Jorge Soler

Jorge Soler is an outfielder known for his power-hitting ability. He made his MLB debut in 2014 with the Chicago Cubs and was part of the team that ended the Cubs’ 108-year World Series drought in 2016.

His breakout season came after a trade to the Kansas City Royals. In 2019, he led the American League in home runs with 48, setting a new Royals single-season record. However, Soler’s first All-Star appearance wasn’t until this season with the Marlins.

Soler also has displayed his power in the postseason, earning the World Series MVP award in 2021 as a member of the Atlanta Braves.

Soler Key Stats

  • All-Star (Marlins)
  • 40+ Home Run Season (Royals)
  • 100+ RBI Season (Royals)

Benito Santiago

As a young catcher growing up, I remember seeing Benito Santiago throwing players out from his knees and thought it was the coolest thing ever and something I remember imitating in Little League games.

But, that’s not what matters here. What matters is that 5 time All-Star Benito Santiago played for 9 different teams throughout this 20 year career which makes him an absolute force on the Immaculate Grid.

Santiago played for Padres, Giants, Reds, (Florida) Marlins, Blue Jays, Royals, Pirates, Phillies and Cubs.

RARITY SCORE ALERT: Benito Santiago was a good player, but not a Hall of Famer. Combine that with the fact that he only played for two seasons with the Marlins (’93 & ’94) and just one season with the Cubs (1999) and you have a chance for a very low rarity score with Santiago here.

I’ve previously scored a 0.2% with Santiago on a Marlins / Cubs block.

Cliff Floyd

Cliff Floyd, who played from 1993 to 2009, is best known for his time as an outfielder and first baseman with the Florida Marlins and New York Mets.

Floyd had a solid career, collecting over 1400 hits, 233 home runs, and a .278 career batting average. He was named an All-Star in 2001 (Marlins), and he was a key contributor to the Marlins’ World Series championship in 1997.

Floyd’s standout season might have been in 2001 with the Marlins when he posted a .317 batting average with 31 home runs and 103 RBIs.
