Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post reports that a reunion between Ivan Rodriguez and the Marlins is not likely and the biggest factor is playing time.
"Obviously the issue is playing time,” [Scott] Boras said Tuesday, adding he also is talking to teams that might be willing to give Rodriguez, 37, a bigger role than the Marlins are offering.
Capozzi added that the Marlins are offering contract worth less than $1MM that would come with performance incentives. Boras added that the economics of the deal may have also been a hurdle, but that the playing time issue needed to be addressed first.
Yesterday, Pudge said that he would like to play for the Marlins again, while Jon Heyman thinks the Astros are interested and Jim Baumbach reported that the Mets have their eye on the catcher.
