According to MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro, the Marlins continue to have interest in free agent lefty Will Ohman. Back on February 16th, ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick said Ohman had offers in hand from the Marlins, Padres, and Pirates. The Pirates are still involved, while the Padres are seen as a long shot. Ohman doesn’t figure to get more than $1MM as the lefty reliever market continues to drag.
Frisaro adds that the Marlins were one of about 15 teams watching Chad Cordero’s recent workout. Frisaro’s read on the audition:
The reports are Cordero likely won’t be ready until perhaps the second half. His fastball was clocked around 80 mph, and the ball wasn’t coming out of his hand like it did when he was healthy pitching for Washington.
Cordero’s agent Larry Reynolds, however, suggested his client would be at "full tilt" sometime in March.
