Marlins Demote 4 More Players
Even though their game with Detroit was rained out, the Marlins continued to evaluate their roster by sending 4 more players down to the minors: Armando Almanza (P), Chris Clapinski (IF), Benji Gil (SS), and Rafael Medina (P). Medina was a starter last season before falling to various injuries, he was aquired in the Kevin Brown trade (after San Diego aquired him in the Hideki Irabu deal). The Marlins still have to cut 4 more players. Luis Castillo will not be one of them. Boles has decided to keep him and Craig Counsell along with Alex Gonzalez and Dave Berg.
