Time to trim the fat from the Marlins organization. They enter the offseason having 40 roster spots for 48 players, with Jesús Aguilar, Brian Anderson, Jon Berti, Jeff Brigham, Garrett Cooper, José Devers, Jorge Guzman and Cody Poteet pending reinstatement from the 60-day injured list. That’s without even considering Rule 5 draft-eligible prospects who are worth protecting next month.

The tentative Fish Stripes podcast schedule for this offseason is as follows:

  • Tuesday mornings—Big Fish Small Pod hosted by Daniel Rodriguez
  • Wednesday mornings—The Offishial Show (hosted by me!)
  • Friday mornings—Big Fish Small Pod hosted by A.T. Werdal
  • Every other Saturday—Fish Stripes Unfiltered hosted by Isaac Azout and Kevin Barral
