2020 : 3M
2021 : 4M club option or 250K buyout

So, it's a 3.25M guaranteed contract for 1 year. Not bad

35-year-old veteran, had some closing exp as well as 1x all star. Not a huge strikeout induced reliever but it's smart movement both FO and the player. He has been looking for rebounding place.

This guy was amazing when he was second baseman for the Rangers all those years. Surprised he's trying to be a pitcher now but oh well whatever it takes to revive his career.

Good signing, he got a lot less than I thought he would.

This is a bad post and you should feel bad.

So who comes off the 40? I not sure they need Wallach with Alfaro and Cervelli, maybe Conley?

They still need Wallach and they claim they aren't giving up on Conley yet. What team can go without a possible third catcher especially with Cervellis injury history?

They can find a catcher at the end of spring training after all the cuts have been made and store him in AAA if needed, pretty much why they have Lavarnway there now

Maybe Dugger gets the DFA for the 40-man?

He really shouldn't, if any of the rotation candidates get injured Dugger is next in line.

We're kinda thin on rotation options that are actually ready for the start of the season.

I guess we will find out soon, the Kintzler signing should be official one day this week.

Kintzler is great against lefties, which we won't see because Mattingly will use him mostly against righties. Because stats don't matter.

Holy shit the Marlins actually overpaid someone on purpose!
I know what you’re trying to say, but they didn’t overpay for Kintzler. They paid him market value. I believe what you’re trying to say is they didn’t simply settle for the cheaper option. They went and got the guy they thought was a better fit.
