The Miami Marlins have been busy making roster moves this week. The team has also been busy making bullpen upgrades. The roster moves aren't coming to an end, as another one took place today. There's also a major extension that affects The Fish as well... Let's just say that there's a lot of news today, so let's jump in and start analyzing all of the action!

The Miami Marlins made a roster move and watched a former trade target sign an extension.

Let's start with another change to the Miami Marlins bullpen. Sean Nolin has already been designated for assignment. The 33 year old has a career 6.34 ERA/5.31 FIP with 5.5 K/9 and 4.1 BB/9 with the Toronto Blue Jays, Oakland Athletics, Washington Nationals and now the Miami Marlins. He was terrible in his brief call-up to The Fish. The lefty delivered an 18.00 ERA/12.66 FIP with 6.0 K/9 and 6.0 BB/9 in a game and 3.0 innings pitched. It was a very short sample size, but there's nothing in his track record that promised any significantly better results.

Nolin's replacement on the Miami Marlins roster is Bryan Hoeing. The 26 year old righty had a 12.08 ERA/8.48 FIP, with 4.3 K/9 and 3.6 BB/9 in 8 games (1 start) and 12.2 innings pitched in 2022. I'm not particularly excited about seeing him back on the roster, but maybe things will go better for him the second time around.

Bryan Reynolds has finally signed an extension with the Pittsburgh Pirates! I guess he really was serious about wanting to re-sign with the team. Reynolds has a .294/.319/.553 batting line in 22 games and 85 AB so far this season. He has a career .282/.359/.484 batting line in 5 seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates. The extension is for 8 years/$106.75 million. It's the biggest extension ever given out by the team. It also closes the door on all of the trade rumors surrounding Reynolds.

Reynolds was a Miami Marlins trade target in the past, but Pittsburgh's asking price was too high as they just didn't want to trade him. It's a shame that The Fish never acquired him, but I fully agree with the team not paying Pittsburgh's outrageous price. The extension is good for Pittsburgh, but Reynolds could have done better on the open market.
