If this article is correct, the Marlins are going with what they have already.
Several big-name players remain unsigned -- including Ivan Rodriguez, Manny Ramirez andBobby Abreu -- but the Marlins said Saturday they are not in a position to offer any free agent more than the $400,000 minimum.
There ain't no stinking way the Marlins will sign a big-name player for the league minimum.
If the front office sticks to this then Rabelo or possibly Hayes will be the backup catcher. I have never seen Hayes play, but I will definitely be following his progress in spring training.
