The Marlins have non-tendered super-utility man Alfredo Amezaga, feeling he was too big of a risk coming back from microfracture surgery on his knee. The team could still conceivably sign him at a lower price after March 2 (as per MLB rules), but as Craig points out, Amezaga has "a lot time to prove to the other clubs he is good to go while the Marlins are sitting on the sidelines." So goodbye, Fredo. Your stats were never good enough to start, but you did everything you could for the team, even making yourself Miguel Cabrera's personal celebration dance specialist. You will be missed.
Cue Neil Young...
And once more, for posterity, below is Amezaga's best Ozzie Smith impression.
