Marlins designated RHP Arquimedes Caminero for assignment.

Caminero tossed a few innings for the big club last year but spent the majority of the time at Triple-A, registering a 4.86 ERA in 63 innings of work. He was designated for assignment to make room for Ichiro Suzuki on the 40-man roster.

Marlins signed OF Ichiro Suzuki to a one-year contract.

The deal is expected to be for around $2 million. Suzuki batted .284/.324/.340 with one homer and 15 steals last season for the Yankees and is 156 hits away from 3,000 for his major league career. Ichiro is 41 and has faded in recent years, but on a modest one-year deal as a fourth outfielder he's worth a shot.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Marlins are expected to finalize their one-year, $2 million contract with Ichiro Suzuki in the next couple days.

Ichiro still needs to take a physical before the deal becomes official. The veteran outfielder batted .284/.324/.340 with one homer and 15 steals last season for the Yankees. He'll be the Marlins' fourth outfielder.
Jan 27 - 7:30 PM

Marlins signed RHP Vin Mazzaro to a minor league contract.

The deal includes an invitation to spring training for the veteran right-hander. The 28-year-old spent most of the 2014 campaign at Triple-A Indianapolis, compiling a 2.52 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 34/20 K/BB ratio over 50 innings. He'll compete for a spot in the Marlins bullpen.

SiriusXM's Craig Mish reports that the Marlins have agreed to a contract with Ichiro Suzuki.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal says it's a one-year deal for around $2 million, which are the terms Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reported on Wednesday. Ichiro, who will serve as the club's No. 4 outfielder, batted .284/.324/.340 with one homer and 15 steals last season for the Yankees. He's 156 hits away from 3,000 for his major league career.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins have offered a one-year contract to free agent outfielder Ichiro Suzuki worth $2 million.

According to Jackson, the Marlins are "optimistic, but not certain" that a deal will get done. Suzuki, 41, had drawn interest from several teams this month but the Marlins have remained the most steadfast in pursuit of him as a fourth outfielder. The 14-year major league veteran hit .284/.324/.340 with 15 stolen bases for the Yankees last season.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins haven't received any trade offers for Dan Haren, and aren't actively shopping him.

Haren had stated his preference to pitch for a West coast team close to his family, but there haven't been any takers thus far in the off-season. The Marlins will try to accommodate Haren if an offer comes along, but they are content if he stays in their starting rotation. Over the last three seasons, Haren has a 4.33 ERA and a 438/105 K/BB ratio over 532 1/3 innings. In the event Haren is traded, David Phelps or Brad Hand would take his spot at the back of the rotation.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins expect Jose Fernandez to return some time after June 1.

Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill said on Monday, "We're still thinking June, July area" for his return to the majors. The Marlins will have him throw off of a mound during spring training to gauge his progress. Fernandez underwent Tommy John surgery in May last season. Prior to landing on the disabled list, Fernandez had a 2.44 ERA with a 70/13 K/BB ratio in 51 2/3 innings.

Marlins signed INF/OF Don Kelly to a minor league contract.

The deal includes an invitation to spring training. The 34-year-old's versatility should give him an opportunity to compete for a spot on the Marlins bench, but he has extremely limited appeal in fantasy leagues.
Jan 18 - 10:49 PM

MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports that the Marlins are "not ruling out" a two-year contract for Ichiro Suzuki.

Ichiro is 156 hits away from 3,000, and it sounds like the Marlins might want to capitalize on a potential attendance boost as Suzuki chases the milestone in year two. The problem, of course, is that Ichiro is already 41 and hasn't posted an OPS+ over 100 since 2010. Miami would use Suzuki in a fourth outfielder role.
Jan 18 - 12:07 PM

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN reports that the Marlins interest in free agent outfielder Ichiro Suzuki is intensifying.

Suzuki has drawn interest from several teams in recent weeks, though he is likely looking for a starting role. He remains just 156 hits shy of 3000 for his MLB career.
Jan 17 - 12:36 PM

Mat Latos requested $10.4 million and was offered $9.4 million from the Marlins when arbitration figures were exchanged.

MLBTradeRumors.com projected Latos to earn just $8.4 million through arbitration, so it looks like he'll make out nicely regardless of which side comes out on top here. He was limited to just 16 starts in 2014, but still posted a solid 3.25 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 74/26 K/BB ratio over his 102 1/3 innings.
Jan 17 - 12:36 AM

David Phelps requested $1.875 million and was offered $1.4 million from the Marlins when arbitration figures were exchanged.

With such a small spread, it seems likely that the two sides will be able to work out a deal somewhere in the middle. The 28-year-old is expected to open the 2015 season with a spot in the Marlins starting rotation.
Jan 16 - 10:24 PM

Mike Dunn requested $2.6 million and was offered $2.355 million from the Marlins when arbitration figures were exchanged.

MLBTradeRumors.com had projected Dunn to earn $2.3 million, so it appears as though he'll make out well either way. The 29-year-old southpaw posted a 3.16 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 67/22 K/BB ratio over 57 innings in 2014.
Jan 16 - 10:17 PM

Marlins and 2B Dee Gordon avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.5 million contract.

It's a big raise for the speedy infielder in his first year of arbitration eligibility. Gordon batted .289/.326/.378 while leading the majors with 64 stolen bases in an All-Star season last year.
