Marlins' Daniel Castano: Outrighted to Triple-A
Castano (shoulder) cleared waivers and was sent outright to Triple-A Jacksonville by the Marlins on Thursday, per Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald.
Miami designated Castano for assignment last week as the corresponding 40-man roster move for its completion of a free-agent agreement with veteran starter Johnny Cueto. The 28-year-old left-hander holds a 3.89 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 45:28 K:BB ratio in 85.2 career innings at the MLB level.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Eury Perez: Invited to MLB camp
Perez has received an invitation to the Marlins' major-league spring training camp, Craig Mish of the Miami Herald reports.
Perez is the best prospect in the Marlins' system and one of the best pitching prospects in all of baseball. The 19-year-old finished last season with a 3.97 ERA and 110:25 K:BB ratio over 77 innings over 18 starts. Perez is a long-shot to make the Marlins out of spring training, but the right-hander has a great chance to make starts in 2023, and his swing-and-miss stuff gives him the potential to be fantasy-relevant immediately....

Marlins' Devin Smeltzer: Lands with Marlins
Smeltzer agreed to a minor-league contract with the Marlins on Tuesday, Daniel Alvarez-Montes of ElExtraBase.com reports.
Smeltzer can earn $1 million if he cracks the MLB roster in Miami, per Alvarez-Montes. The 27-year-old left-hander served as a fairly valuable swingman for the Twins in 2022, delivering an overall 3.71 ERA with 40 strikeouts and 19 walks in 70.1 innings -- 12 starts, three relief appearances. He may have a tough time cracking the Marlins' rotation, even with Pablo Lopez gone, but there is a path for Smeltzer to log a sizable workload in a versatile role.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Joey Wendle: Staying at shortstop
Wendle will remain at the top of the depth chart at shortstop for the Marlins despite the acquisition of Luis Arraez from the Twins on Thursday, as Jazz Chisholm will shift to center field, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
Following a spate of recent moves, Miami's infield now figures to feature Jean Segura at third base, Wendle at shortstop and Arraez at second base. The team does have other infield options however, such as Garrett Hampson, Jon Berti and Jordan Groshans, so the Marlins could look to trade Wendle as well after he had a .259/.297/.360 slash line with three home runs, 32 RBI and 12 steals in 101 games last season....

Marlins' Jazz Chisholm: Will play in center in 2023
Marlins general manager Kim Ng told Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com on Friday that Chisolm will play center field in 2023.
This news comes shortly after the Marlins acquired Luis Arraez from the Twins to become the Marlins' new second baseman. Chisholm certainly has the athleticism to handle the position, but there was some thought that the 24-year-old would play shortstop -- a position he has previous experience at -- with Arraez in town. He'll have eligibility in the middle infield to begin 2023 and should gain outfield eligibility not long into the season.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Luis Arraez: Headed to Miami in swap for Lopez
Arraez is being acquired by the Marlins from the Twins in exchange for Pablo Lopez, infield prospect Jose Salas and outfield prospect Byron Chourio, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Arraez won a batting title with the Twins in 2022 by hitting .316 and sports a career .314 batting average. He can play all over the infield as well as in left field, and it's unclear where Miami plans to slot him into the lineup. Going to LoanDepot Park is a bit of a downgrade for Arraez's power outlook, although that's not a big part of his game, and his overall fantasy outlook is a little dimmer as the Marlins lineup certainly looks worse on paper than the Twins....

Marlins' Daniel Castano: DFA'd by Miami
Castano (shoulder) was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Thursday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Castano appeared in 10 games (seven starts) for the Marlins in 2022 and had a 4.04 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 20:9 K:BB across 35.2 innings. He was sidelined for over a month by a concussion after being struck in the head by a comebacker last summer, and he was also diagnosed with a small labrum tear in his shoulder in September. It's unclear if the left-hander will be ready for the start of spring training in February.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Max Meyer: Nearing return to throwing
Meyer (elbow) said Wednesday he expects to begin a throwing program within the next few weeks, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
The 23-year-old underwent Tommy John surgery in August, so a return to throwing six months later would be an encouraging sign for his recovery timeline. Meyer still faces a lengthy rehab schedule to build back his arm strength, but a return late in the 2023 campaign appears possible, assuming he avoids any setbacks.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jacob Stallings: Avoids arbitration with Miami
Stallings signed a one-year, $3.35 million contract with the Marlins on Friday to avoid arbitration, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
Stallings managed a lowly .584 OPS in 2022 but continued to draw praise for his defense and handling of the pitching staff. He'll share catching duties with Nick Fortes in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Pablo Lopez: Settles with Miami
Lopez agreed to a one-year, $5.45 million contract with the Marlins on Friday to avoid arbitration, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
Lopez made $2.45 million in his first year of arbitration eligibility last season, and he'll more than double that salary in 2023. The 26-year-old had a 3.75 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 174:53 K:BB over 180 innings last year.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Tanner Scott: Reaches deal with Miami
Scott agreed to a $2.825 million contract with the Marlins on Friday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.
The 28-year-old led the Marlins with 20 saves last season, but he struggled during the second half while Dylan Floro finished the campaign as the primary closer. Scott finished with a 4.31 ERA, 1.61 WHIP and 90:46 K:BB across 62.2 innings and is likely to open 2023 in a setup role.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Joey Wendle: Settles for $6 million
Wendle agreed to a one-year, $6 million contract with the Marlins on Friday to avoid arbitration, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
Miami declined Wendle's $6.6 million mutual option for 2023 in November, but he remained under team control and will have a slightly lower salary. The 32-year-old had a .259/.27/.360 slash line with three homers and 12 steals in 101 games last season, and he could open 2023 as the Marlins' starting shortstop after Miguel Rojas was shipped to the Dodgers.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Garrett Cooper: Settles for $4.2 million
Cooper agreed to a one-year, $4.2 million contract with the Marlins on Friday to avoid arbitration, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
Cooper played a career-high 119 games last season and had a .261/.337/.415 slash line with nine home runs and 50 RBI. The 32-year-old should be Miami's Opening Day starter at first base and is entering his final year before free agency.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Enrique Burgos: Latches on with Marlins
Burgos signed a minor-league contract with the Marlins on Friday.
Burgos has spent the last few seasons pitching in independent ball and in the Mexican League. He last saw action in the majors back in 2016 and is likely to begin 2023 at Triple-A Jacksonville.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jazz Chisholm: Team undecided on position
Marlins general manager Kim Ng told Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald Thursday that the team is undecided on Chisholm's position for 2023.
The trade of Miguel Rojas to the Dodgers could potentially free up Chisholm to move to his natural position at shortstop. However, he's not considered a strong defender there, so the club might ultimately keep him at second base and use Joey Wendle as their primary shortstop. That's if Wendle himself isn't also traded. Chisholm was limited to 60 games in 2022 due to back and knee issues but should enter spring training with a clean bill of health.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jacob Amaya: Acquired by Miami
Amaya (undisclosed) was acquired by the Marlins from the Dodgers on Wednesday in exchange for shortstop Miguel Rojas (wrist), Jim Bowden of The Athletic reports.
Amaya split the 2022 campaign between the Double-A and Triple-A levels and had a .261/.369/.426 slash line across 133 games. He landed on the 60-day injured list in October with an unspecified injury, and it's unclear if he'll be ready for the start of spring training next month.... See More ... See Less
