Marlins Release Ty Wigginton

The Marlins have released infielder Ty Wigginton, reports Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald (via Twitter). The 36-year-old had signed a minor league deal with the club after sitting out most of 2013.

In 38 trips to the plate this spring, Wigginton managed only a .147/.237/.176 line. Before a difficult start to his 2013 season led to his release by the Cardinals (after he had signed a two-year deal), Wigginton had been a solid big leaguer. Though not the player he was earlier in his career, over 2009-12 Wigginton put up a combined .250/.313/.404 triple-slash.

Shame.. Still feel Wiggy will find a job somewhere during the season, or end up with someone at the AAA level before the month is out if he chooses. The guy is a gamer, pure and simple.

You obviously haven’t seen him play in a few years. The guy is well below average in every part of the game. He was the worst player I had watched wear a Cardinals uniform in years.

Released by Marlins.

Will still make $2.5M this year thanks to Cardinal’s previous contract.
