The Marlins have acquired right-handed pitcher Severino Gonzalez from the Phillies in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations. Gonzalez has spent time as both a reliever and starter, but would be groomed to take a the role of a starter. He went 3-3 in 7 starts with the Phillies last year, racking up a 7.92 ERA. So what does this mean? Miami has their work cut out for them.

Here’s what else is going on in the National League East:

  • The Marlins are interested in a reunion with Jeff Francoeur.
  • When will Nationals prospect Victor Robles make his way to the majors?
  • Matt Imhof is oddly yet endearingly positive about his eye injury.
  • The Mets are interested in a trade with the Braves for Vizcaino.
  • Washington has re-signed Stephen Drew to a one-year, $3.5M deal.
  • Here are all the Braves non roster spring training invites.
  • Jay Bruce will be the Mets everyday right fielder, so I guess all those trade talks are busts now.
  • The Nationals are more than comfortable of the current depth of their starting rotation. The question is, are the fans on that same page?
  • The Braves want even more money from Cobb County to pay for SunTrust Park.
  • The Marlins acquisition of Straily could result in the loss of Urena.
  • The Mets are reportedly interested in Sergio Romo, Joe Smith, and Jerry Blevins.
  • The Dodgers may be interested in Cesar Hernandez. Should the Phillies take calls on him? And why does Los Angeles keep going after Phillies towards the end of their careers?
