I didn't realize that he didn't play at all last year and had Tommy John.

Maybe Dietrich to third now?

LF Yelich
2B Furcal
RF Stanton
1B Morrison
CF Ozuna
C Salty
3B Dietrich
SS Hech
Pitcher

Improving slowly but surely.

Hopefully Dietrich is in AAA to work on his plate discipline. A free agent to play 3B would be really nice.

Or something. We'll see what happens, we're not done.

Smart signing. Solid stopgap to give Dietrich more time in the minors. Hopefully he's in good shape after taking a year off to recover from tommy john.

I'd guess this deal is less than $3m.

The move to 2nd base should help out

Take out 3B and 1B and hopefully hech improves and oh man, I like it. We went from a 62 win team to a 73 win team with these 2 signings in my opinion. 19 more to go.

Really think they should pursue Morales next, if not try to get Michael Young or Yuniesky Betencourt to fill in at 3rd.

No bentancourt. Get playoff guys like salty and furcal. I like Chavez and youkilis.

Yeah with this signning I don't think the Marlins sign a 3b and look to fill that slot internally with Dietrich. They are not going to spend big at that position with Moran around the corner and if they do anyting it might be a 1 year deal type FA(Bentancourt/Chavez ect).

Remember the Marlins are not going to get close to that 50 mi cap. 45 tops and they are not far off considering what they have to pay in arbritration.
