The Marlins released Sergio Mitre, who will likely miss most of 2009 after Tommy John surgery ended his season. Mitre, who went 5-8 with a 4.65 ERA last year, may get picked up by the Rockies for the end of their rotation because of his ability to force the ground ball. While nothing is imminent, expect the Rockies to be in on him when he is healthy.
The Cubs are another possibility, who are known to give former players a second shot.
