Well, considering that the Marlins’ 6th starter is Wade LeBlanc… a minor league deal would not be a bad move. Brad Hand is too green, Sean West and Alex Sanabia have injury issues.

The Marlins should look for a role for Pudge in their ogrinization…. though I that role could be backup catcher

I like the Allen pickup for the Rays. Low risk high reward type. Plus I remember rumored interest in him since mid last year so they got their guy without having to give up anything. It is interesting to note that the Rays do have a history of getting production/use out of former A’s first basemen. Steve Cox, Carlos Pena (2002), Dan Johnson and now Allen. Even if Allen turns out to be another Dan Johnson I’d say this pickup/roster spot would be worth it.
