The Marlins have looked into Joba Chamberlain

We have heard the Marlins linked to free agents Francisco Rodriguez and Phil Coke in recent weeks, but CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman hears that they have discussed another veteran arm for their bullpen:

The market for Chamberlain has been remarkably quiet this offseason, but some of that has been his own doing. FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reported late last month that the 29-year-old “has rejected multiple offers from teams he did not want to join.”

Chamberlain had a 3.57 ERA and 59/24 K/BB ratio in 63 innings with the Tigers last season. He might not be an ideal candidate for a set-up role anymore, but he could still be pretty useful.
