Marlins Sign C Jason Phillips
The Marlins added some organizational depth at the catcher position by signing Jason Phillips and assigning him to AAA Albuquerque. You may remember the 7-year veteran from his days with the New York Mets. This past season he has been with the Toronto Blue Jays where he hit .208 with 1 home run and 12 RBI.
The Marlins lack real depth or talent at the catcher position both in the majors and in the minors. I am thinking (and hoping) that this means that Miguel Olivo won’t be with the Marlins next year. I have said before that his offense is simply not good enough to make up for his defense and his handling of the pitchers.
