Marlins Sign Jose Veras

The Marlins signed reliever Jose Veras to a minor league deal, tweets Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post.

Veras, 30, posted a 5.19 ERA, 7.2 K/9, and 5.0 BB/9 in 50.3 innings last year for the Yankees and Indians.  He was designated for assignment twice during the season, and non-tendered by the Tribe in December.  The Marlins added Derrick Turnbow to their pen earlier today.

Great movement on his fastball, can’t throw a strike to save his life.

Yeah, that 7.2 K/9 is nice but that 5.0 BB/9 is well… not nice.

A classic example of how middle relief is a roll of the dice from season to season. Couldn’t wait to get this guy out of New York fast enough, he was hot garbage a season after being useful.

You’re better off using your minor leaguers in middle relief.

5 BB per 9? Yick. AAA bound if he can’t get that down. Organizational depth.
