Marlins’ Roster Solidifying
That leaves 3 spots for a backup catcher, at least one reliever, and potentially one other position player (but only if they're comfortable with 12 pitchers instead of 13)— Fish Stripes (@fishstripes) March 28, 2018

In regards to those final three spots, Chad Wallach is the presumed favorite for the back-up catcher gig (until J.T. Realmuto gets back and pushes Tomas Telis back into said position), and hard-throwing Tayron Guerrero and minor league invite Jumbo Diaz are in play for that last reliever position. The final position is a bit of a mystery, I wont hazard a guess. The Marlins have until 11:35 am eastern to finalize the roster.
