Marlins News

Last year, the Marlins were very aggressive at the Winter Meetings, picking up Dee Gordon, Mat Latos and Dan Haren all in the space of just a few days. This year, however, Miami is going with an open mind and waiting to see what unfolds in front of them.

The Fish picked up some bullpen help yesterday as they acquired the hard-throwing Nefi Ogando off waivers from the Phillies.

The rumors continue to swirl that Barry Bonds will, indeed, become a hitting coach with the team. Multiple reports say the deal is done, but there is no official word from the Marlins.

It was reported that Miami may have found a trade partner in the Mariners for Marcell Ozuna last week. These negotiations may have broken down, though.

The news that Barry Bonds may reside in the Marlins' dugout next season has been met with some criticism.
