Barry Jackson has a couple of Marlins-related notes in his latest piece for the Miami Herald. Here are the highlights:
- Jackson hears that the Marlins have made a five-year offer worth about $13MM to Aroldis Chapman. Chapman will certainly receive higher offers from other clubs, but it's worth a shot for the Marlins, in case the Cuban defector prefers South Florida.
- Replacing departed relievers Matt Lindstrom, Kiko Calero, and Brendan Donnelly is a priority for Florida.
- Among their bullpen targets: Matt Capps, Tyler Walker, and Jose Veras.
