Twins news aside, this has been a pretty slow news day. But here’s the third Marlins post I have today, so at least we know Miami is alive. Anyway:
Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins have been in contact with Jose Reyes, and may have been talking to him since the moment free agents became truly free last week. Mike Francesa of WFAN said today that the Marlins have already made an offer, but then again, he says a lot of things. Nothing appears imminent.
Obviously Reyes to Miami would be a major change for everyone involved. Including Hanley Ramirez, who would suddenly be looking at a different position.
The Baltimore Orioles have claimed utilityman Jace Peterson off waivers from the Yankees.
Peterson has played in three games this season and has been DFA’d twice. He had no place to play in New York but perhaps the O’s can use his versatility. While mostly a second baseman in his career he’s appeared at every position except pitcher and catcher at some point along the way, and that’s useful. More useful for a team that isn’t going anyplace like Baltimore, I presume. Saves ’em on gas money from Norfolk when someone gets an owie.
To make room for Peterson the O’s moved Gabriel Ynoa, who is suffering from shoulder inflammation, from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list. Ynoa has yet to appear in a game this season.
