Mbaamin scored the hat trick with yesterday's post in the Open Thread. Kim is now a free agent.
In two separate stints in 2007, Byung-Hyun Kim turned out being one of the Marlins' most dependable starters. His outings weren't always pretty, but the veteran right-hander logged some valuable innings in the final weeks.
The move was expected, and Kim becomes the third and final Marlins player to file. He joins infielder Aaron Boone and reliever Armando Benitez.
If the Marlins bring Kim back, it would be as a fifth-starter candidate.
I wouldn't mind having Kim back, but if there is any demand for him, he won't be in the Marlins price range. Of course, that doesn't mean he won't be available on the waiver wire later in the season.
