The MLB season is about six weeks in and the Philadelphia Phillies have the best record in the National League at 24-11. They are clicking on all cylinders right now both offensively and defensively.

Although it's a long season, they are playing some really good baseball. They have multiple difference makers stepping up with Alec Bohm, Ranger Suarez, and Aaron Nola paying major dividends.

With all the positive vibes coming from Philadelphia, the perfect trade target from the Miami Marlins might be on the move and could be a nice addition to the Phillies.

Phillies News: Marlins' Jazz Chisholm Jr. Could Be on the Move

Marlins president Peter Bendix was asked about Jazz Chisholm Jr. being on the roster for the entire season and gave a very shaky answer, saying he doesn't know what to expect.

This statement came hours after Miami traded Luis Arraez and cash considerations to the San Diego Padres in exchange for OF Dillion Head, 1B Nathan Martorella, OF Jakob Marsee, and RHP Woo-Suk Go.

Arraez was the National League batting average leader and an all-star last season, but was still sent out.

It's been a disastrous start to the season for the Marlins as they are currently 10-26. They are looking to change things around and Chisholm Jr. could be on the way out.

Adding a dynamic 26-year-old playmaker in the outfield could take the Phillies' roster over the top. Chisholm Jr. is still under contract until 2026 and won't be making much as he's still going through arbitration.

He is a very athletic switch-hitter with tremendous range in the outfield. Chisholm Jr. is hitting .234 with four homers, and 19 RBIs, and has snagged seven stolen bases this season.

He's the perfect trade target for the Phillies to help elevate an already-loaded roster.
