In the non-glamorous deals made by the Marlins, the Fish signed RP Eddy Rodriguez to a minor league contract.
He has a nice K/IP but his BB/IP leaves a lot to be desired.
The other move was to add lefty Paul Mildren to the 40-man roster. Mildren pitched for Carolina last season going 10-10 with a 4.14 ERA. He did strikeout almost a player per inning.
A couple of tidbits about the glamorous deals which were covered very well by Dan. Owens is leading the Dominican Winter League in saves with 9 thus far. And that ain't no easy league.
The other is also about Owens and is primarily for Fishfan24.
I guess it is true: Baseball > Med School.
One other thing: Do you think that the two trades made yesterday were the two left on the table after the GM meetings or do you think they were ancillary?
