With the MLB non-tender deadline having officially passed, there were a few notable roster moves made by the Miami Marlins on Tuesday night that were not trade or signing related.
Miami Marlins designate Lewis Brinson for assignment
Arguably the most-notable move was the Marlins designating outfielder Lewis Brinson for assignment in the corresponding move for the Wendle trade.
Brinson appeared in a total of 89 games with the Marlins during the 2021 season where the 27-year-old outfielder slashed a combined .226/.263/.376 with nine home runs and 33 RBI’s. Brinson also saw time at all three outfield positions defensively, a majority of which came in left field.
Acquired from the Milwaukee Brewers back in January of 2018 in the Christian Yelich deal, Brinson appeared in a total of 320 games across the last four seasons in Miami in which he slashed a combined .203/.248/.325 with 23 home runs, 105 RBI’s, and nine stolen bases.
Miami Marlins tender contracts to 10 players
The Miami Marlins also announced on Tuesday night that the club has tendered contracts to 10 different players. The deadline to tender contracts to eligible players was set for Tuesday night at 8:00 pm ET.
Among the 10 players who were tendered were the recently acquired Stallings and Wendle, as well as a few other expected regulars in the lineup such as Aguilar, Anderson, and Cooper, as well as a prominent part of the rotation in Lopez.
One of the more-notable tendered players was Berti who was arguably a non-tender candidate. Berti appeared in 85 games with the Marlins in a utility role before suffering an injury, slashing .210/.311/.313 during that span with four home runs, 19 RBI’s, and eight stolen bases.
The Miami Marlins have been one of the more active teams in baseball across the past two days. Will those numerous moves continue for the club on Wednesday?
