The latest on the Marlins as they firm up their roster in advance of Friday's opener against the Mets...
- Outfielder Dewayne Wise has been reassigned to minor league camp, tweets Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald. Wise is unsure whether he'll accept the assignment, reports Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. The 33-year-old hit .250/.304/.462 in 55 spring plate appearances. Wise had a better spring than Scott Cousins, but a mid-March toe injury hurt Wise's chances. Also, Spencer notes that Wise would require a 40-man roster spot, even though they'd be full if they add Donnie Murphy and Greg Dobbs and put Evan Reed on the 60-day DL.
- Rodriguez also notes that the Marlins released former first-round pick Brett Sinkbeil. The 26-year-old righty had been removed from the 40-man roster in November after posting a 5.71 ERA in 63 Triple-A relief innings.
- Spencer's article explains that eight relievers are battling for seven spots on the Marlins. Two of Burke Badenhop, Brian Sanches, and Edward Mujica are expected to make the team, wrote MLB.com's Joe Frisaro yesterday. Mujica and Sanches are out of options.
- Murphy appears to be the team's Opening Day third baseman; president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest told Spencer the trade front is quiet. They'd only be looking for a "place-keeper" for Matt Dominguez, anyway.
