Catcher

Jorge Alfaro – Trade

Originally signed as a free agent back in 2010 by the Texas Rangers, Alfaro was traded in July of 2015 to the Philadelphia Phillies as a focal point of a multi-player trade that sent Cole Hamels to Texas. Reaching the big leagues with the Phillies, Alfaro was then traded once again to the Marlins as a member of the JT Realmuto deal. Now in year three in Miami, Alfaro has slashed .250/.298/.391 during his Marlins career.

Alex Jackson – Trade

One of the newest members of the Marlins organization, Jackson was originally a first round pick in the 2014 MLB Draft by the Seattle Mariners. Traded to the Atlanta Braves in 2016, Jackson reached the big leagues with Atlanta in limited action before being traded to Miami in July as the return for Adam Duvall.

Sandy Leon – Free Agent

A 10-year MLB veteran, Leon originally signed with the Washington Nationals as a free agent back in 2007. After reaching the big leagues with Washington, Leon spent a majority of his career with the Boston Red Sox, as well as with the Cleveland Indians before signing with Miami as a free agent back in January.
