Ah, now some of the free agents are moving off the shelves. The Marlins signed Dallas McPherson to a one-year deal worth $425K. Barely above the minimum; he must’ve liked the opportunity.
He’ll join Jose Castillo and Jorge Cantu in a battle royale to replace Miguel Cabrera at third base. Tough shoes to fill, eh? Who knows, maybe that 30 HR power is still in McPherson’s bat somewhere.
With the McPherson and Ensberg signings today, Corey Koskie is pretty much the only remaining available free agent third baseman.
