The latest on the Marlins...
- The Marlins signed infielder Ramon Vazquez, tweets SI's Jon Heyman. The 34-year-old last appeared in the Majors with the Pirates in '09; this year he's played for the Triple-A affiliates of the Cardinals and Blue Jays. Presumably he'll head to Triple-A for Florida.
- The Marlins took a hit in credibility in optioning Logan Morrison to Triple-A and telling him it was because of his batting average, writes Dave Cameron of FanGraphs.
- Marlins' first round draft pick Jose Fernandez has an interesting back story as a Cuban defector. Drafted 14th overall, the Fish appear to have offered Fernandez a bonus right around the $1.6MM slot so far. His advisor, Richard Arena of Team One Management, told Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel on August 7th, "It’s definitely going to get done. There’s no question."
