  • Francys Romero reported that the Marlins have just $161,900 remaining in their bonus pool for the current MLB international signing period (they initially had $6,366,900).
  • Max Meyer shared footage from one of his first post-Tommy John surgery throwing sessions. The Marlins don’t expect him to make any major league appearances this year, but still worth monitoring.
  • Dameivi Tineo will also be sidelined by Tommy John in 2023, according to Daniel De Vivo of Fish On The Farm. The 19-year-old left-hander pitched for the FCL Marlins and Jupiter Hammerheads in 2022, limiting opponents to a .136 batting average.
  • Former Marlins CEO Derek Jeter is the newest FOX Sports MLB analyst. He’ll be part of their television studio coverage this season. Although Jeter’s hiring is understandable considering how easily recognizable he is, the Captain notoriously avoided saying interesting things during his playing career. Will that change now?
  • The Marlins have added “The Cubano Gigante” to their concessions lineup. It’s a three-foot long cuban sandwich large enough to feed between four and eight people.
