Marlins Notes: De Aza Claimed, St. Claire Could Return

Lots going on with the Marlins, who certainly aren't waiting for the end of the playoffs to start their retooling.

  • Alejandro De Aza was claimed off of waivers by the Chicago White Sox, according to Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. The Marlins may miss De Aza, still only 25, and who posted an .876 OPS in Triple-A this season. Rodriguez reports that the move leaves Florida with 37 men on their 40-man roster.
  • Randy St. Claire, who was fired by Washington in June, is in the mix to be Florida's next pitching coach.
  •'s Marlins beat reporter Joe Frisaro answers a number of reader questions, from whether Jorge Cantu will be back in 2010 (Frisaro thinks so) to whether Dan Uggla will be traded (Frisaro also thinks so).
