Report: Marlins Looking for Relief Help

New, 8 comments

According to a report in the Miami Herald, the Florida Marlins are actively looking to add an additional pitcher to their bullpen. However, it appears they are trying to do so without adding substantial payroll.

Here are some names mentioned:

RHP-Joakim Soria- Kansas City Royals (Nine Saves, $1 Million)


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2009 - Joakim Soria 2-0 18 0 0 0 10 2 18.2 14 5 4 1 7 23 1.93 1.13

  • Sounds like a good idea, however, all reports out of Kansas City is Soria is not available.

LHP-George Sherrill-Baltimore Orioles (16 saves, $2.75 Million)


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2009 - George Sherrill 0-1 33 0 0 0 17 2 31.2 23 7 7 3 9 29 1.99 1.01

  • Sherrill could be a nice fit; the O's are definitely entertaining offers for him.

RHP- Heath Bell- San Diego Padres (21 saves, $1.25 Million)


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2009 - Heath Bell 3-1 32 0 0 0 22 1 33.2 20 5 5 0 14 36 1.34 1.01

  • Still unclear as to whether Bell is available. I imagine he's not, but if the Marlins blew them away with an offer they probably could have him. Don't expect this either.
