Marlins Release Dallas McPherson

10:39pm: Frisaro says the Marlins released McPherson, as they were unable to find a trade.

10:36am: Joe Frisaro of MLB.com has the latest on the Marlins.

  • Out of options Marlins shortstop Robert Andino remains on the Pirates' radar; the interest dates back to at least the Winter Meetings.  Frisaro wonders if the idea of an Andino-Brian Bixler swap could be reignited.  However, with Andino being out of options and Bixler raising his profile during Spring Training, that seems unlikely.  My own speculation – the San Diego would be a good destination for Andino.
  • Frisaro says the Marlins appear to be shopping third baseman Dallas McPherson, who is also out of options.  McPherson, 28, hit .275/.379/.618 with 42 home runs in 448 at-bats last year at Triple A.  Projection systems remain unimpressed, but I'd like to see what he could do in Minute Maid Park.
  • The Marlins are eyeing lefty relief help, with Frisaro naming Pittsburgh's Sean Burnett and free agent Ron Villone as possibilities.
