Offishial news, 11/29/21: Avisaíl García arrives; Sandy Alcantara stays; Sixto Sánchez speaks

The latest Miami Marlins coverage with $109 million of new contracts on the verge of becoming official.

First off, wishing a very Happy Hanukkah to everybody who observes it!

  • The Marlins on Sunday reached agreements to sign free agent Avisaíl García and extend Sandy Alcantara for a combined $109 million. SportsGrid’s Craig Mish broke the news on both fronts. The last time that this franchise made multiple investments of that magnitude to veteran major leaguers during a single week? Mid-January of 2016, when the Fish inked Wei-Yin Chen and Dee Strange-Gordon for a combined $130 million (h/t to the MLB Trade Rumors transaction tracker).

  • In recent years, Alcantara, Pablo López, Trevor Rogers and their pitching coach, Mel Stottlemyre Jr., have all endured the losses of immediately family members. Great piece by Christina De Nicola of about how that bonds them.
  • Entering 2022, we are hoping to find a South Florida-based business to serve as exclusive sponsor of the Fish Stripes podcast. There have been more than 100,000 downloads of the pod this year alone! If interested, leave a comment for me here or email me at
