Armando Benitez


Recommended Posts

This sounds more like a smart, Marlins signing. Say what you want about the cheapness, this is actually a cheap move that could work out. Benitez has had success at this level before, and he's been having success in the minors the past couple of years. It's a lot better than giving the Jorge Sosa's of the world a chance, as we have been doing.

The Marlins re-discovered Benitez in the independent Atlantic League. In 17 games for the Newark Bears, Benitez had an ERA of 1.00, striking out 27 and walking four in 18 innings. He had six saves.

I proudly admit my undying love for these independent leagues across America and guys playing the game for the love of it. We've had some good luck in the minors with some of our signings filling holes created by guys being brought up or otherwise filling gaps in rosters.


Welcome back Armando, I hope you turn some heads.


I don't care what anyone else thinks but an ERA of 1.00 and 27 strikeouts in 18 innings is an impressive feat in any league, at any any level of the game. :thumbup
