Steve Cishek and the Miami Marlins closed out a deal in an effort to avoid arbitration.
The Miami Marlins turned some heads in 2014.
It’s no secret that when the Miami Marlins acquired Dan Haren in a trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers, the veteran pitcher had no intention of leaving the west coast to play for a team far away from his family.
The Miami Marlins have been very busy this winter, acquiring several players that should have major impact in the upcoming season.
The Miami Marlins continued their busy offseason on Tuesday, adding a veteran hitter to help bolster their lineup around slugger Giancarlo Stanton.
The Miami Marlins took a big step towards becoming a contending team in baseball this week when they came to terms on a new contract with slugger Giancarlo Stanton.
Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton has agreed to terms with the team on a $325 million, 13-year contract. Team owner Jeffrey Loria has confirmed the deal, the most lucrative for an American athlete.
Giancarlo Stanton expects to be back for the start of spring training. Jose Fernandez is projected to return around the All-Star break. And the Miami Marlins believe they’ll be ready to rejoin playoff contention in 2015.
On the same day the Marlins ended their 2014 season by getting no-hit by Jordan Zimmermann of the Washington Nationals, Miami began looking ahead by giving manager Mike Redmond a two-year contract extension.
Nationals manager Matt Williams won’t announce his postseason rotation until Washington’s opponent is determined, though Jordan Zimmermann is definitely in his plans.
