Miami has been among the more active teams on the final day of the Winter Meetings, and made another move on Thursday after acquiring Mat Latos from the Reds. According to Colleen Kane of The Chicago Tribune, the Marlins sent lefty reliever Dan Jennings to the White Sox in exchange for right-handed reliever Andre Rienzo.

Jennings posted a 1.34 ERA and 3.48 FIP in 40.1 innings with the Marlins in 2014. He complemented Mike Dunn as one of two left-handed options in Miami's bullpen, and the fact that the Marlins dealt him may mean they are pursuing a veteran lefty specialist. The Marlins added depth to their bullpen upon trading for Kansas City's Aaron Crow at the end of November.

Rienzo posted a 6.82 ERA and 5.73 FIP in 64.2 innings pitched with the White Sox last season. He has a career 5.89 ERA, and posted an ERA in the low fours throughout his time in Triple-A. Rienzo could be a setup option for the Marlins.
