We’re on Nomar Mazara watch!!! https://t.co/gkIe1WbB1E— Fish Stripes (@fishstripes) December 11, 2019
Fish Stripes has daily updates on the meetings. Tuesday was dominated by Mazara rumors, but other lefty bats are better fits. And José Ureña might be on the move.
Monday’s juiciest bunch of gossip involved re-signing Sergio Romo and probably not signing Nicholas Castellanos.
Bye-bye, bullpen. Hello, prospects.
Those moves mean the bullpen will be almost completely made over for 2020.

Lookin’ dramatically different for 2020
These moves cleared space on the Marlins’ 40-man roster for the upcoming Rule 5 draft, which starts Thursday. Spencer Morris previews some of the top options for the Fish, who pick third overall.
