  • Like most of us, MLB Trade Rumors is skeptical of the Marlins spending substantially in free agency. MLBTR’s Anthony Franco predicts that they’ll sign Brandon Drury to a two-year deal and Darragh McDonald has them inking Michael Brantley to a one-year deal. And even those sentiments are not shared by the rest of the site’s staff.
  • I put together stats and notes on nearly 20 Marlins minor league free agents. Hopefully they can reach a deal to keep Jordan Holloway around.
