Marlins' Bryan Morris: Agrees to one-year deal with Marlins, avoiding arbitration
Morris agreed to a one-year, $1.35 million contract with the Marlins in January of 2016, avoiding arbitration. Morris cracked the majors in 2012, pitching well out of the bullpen for the Pirates and then Marlins after a mid-season trade in 2014. The 28-year-old reliever can consistently reach the mid-90s with his fastball, and could be an option to take on the closer role should A.J. Ramos suffer an injury.

Marlins pitcher Bryan Morris is scheduled to throw in back-to-back games Sunday for the team's Class A affiliate, reports the Sun Sentinel. Morris has been on the DL since early June because of a lower back strain. "Probably after 30 pitches, we'll be able to assess where he is and make sure the quality of his strides are where they need to be," manager Dan Jennings said. "He's going back-to-back, which is good. We'll run him out there for two innings. From there, reassess it and make a decision."

Marlins expected to move to closer by committee
After a second straight blown save for closer Steve Cishek, Marlins manager Mike Redmond is planning to make some changes, according to MLB.com. Redmond noted he will mix and match his relievers in the ninth inning with Cishek, A.J. Ramos, Bryan Morris and Mike Dunn seeing time. "Shrek [Cishek] has done a tremendous job for us, but at the end of the day, it's about winning games," Redmond said. Cishek has now blown four saves this season. "This is about as low as I can get," Cishek said. "This is a huge trial in my life right now, obviously, career-wise. I've always found a way to get out of it. I'm waiting for that time to come." Miami has blown three saves are their current road-trip. "It's tough to win in the big leagues, and when you get late leads, you've got to be able to lock them down," Redmond said. "Against a team like the Dodgers, they have so many weapons, great pitching. You know you're not going to get a lot off those guys. To have a lead in the ninth, you've got to be able to finish them."
