Marlins Notes: Choate, Morrison, Fernandez

The latest on the Marlins, who are taking on their expansion cousins in Denver tonight...

  • The Marlins placed left-hander Randy Choate on waivers today, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe (on Twitter). Other teams now have two days to place a claim on Choate, who earns $1MM this year and $1.5MM next year. Assuming he does get claimed, Florida will have two business days to consider possible moves with the team that makes the winning claim.
  • Logan Morrison, who is now in Triple-A, doesn't appear to plan to file a grievance against the Marlins for demoting him, according to Jon Heyman of SI.com (on Twitter). It appeared over the weekend that Morrison would consider a grievance after the Marlins' surprising decision to send him to the minor leagues.
  • The Marlins plan to get 14th overall selection Jose Fernandez into games before the minor league season ends, according to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com. Florida will assign the right-hander to the Gulf Coast League this week. The Marlins signed him for $2MM last night.
