The Marlins earned some praise from Ely Sussman at Wednesday’s MLB non-tender deadline, agreeing to contracts with Jesús Aguilar and Garrett Cooper (4:50) and cutting their losses with disappointing reliever Ryne Stanek (20:00). Elsewhere around the league, outfielder Eddie Rosario, right-hander Archie Bradley and left-hander Carlos Rodón are among the prominent names who’ve just entered the free agent market (25:10) and potentially fit with the Fish.

Jorge Alfaro, Brian Anderson, Richard Bleier, Adam Cimber and Yimi García were each tendered contracts, but are still in negotiations with the front office to finalize the specifics.

Stanek’s departure creates a little wiggle on the Marlins 40-man roster heading into next week’s (virtual) MLB winter meetings.

Shortly after this pod was recorded, the DFA’d José Ureña officially cleared waivers and entered free agency.
