      Marlins' Carter Capps: Could push for closer job

      Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill said he expects there to be an open competition for the closer job in spring training, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. Capps baffled hitters with his dynamic fastball-slider combo and jump-step delivery in 2015, posting a 1.16 ERA, 0.81 WHIP, and 58:7 K:BB in 30 appearances before an elbow injury ended his season. Incumbent A.J. Ramos is also coming off a stellar season, but can get wild with his control, and will need to put together a strong spring in order to fend off Capps.

      Marlins' Carter Capps: Avoids arbitration with Marlins

      Capps (elbow) agreed to a one-year deal with the Marlins on Friday, avoiding arbitration, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports. While he won't open the year as the Marlins closer (that honor still belongs to A.J. Ramos), Capps should be drafted in most roto leagues, as his 49.2% K-rate was the best in baseball last year. Health is always a concern with Capps, but as long as he is healthy, and he is expected to be for spring training, his ratios and strikeouts can make a big difference. If Ramos were to struggle or get dealt, Capps would be the obvious replacement option in the ninth inning.

      Marlins RP Carter Capps to throw one more bullpen session

      Marlins pitcher Carter Capps (elbow) is expected to throw one more bullpen session during the Marlins' upcoming home stand before being activated from the disabled list, the Miami Herald reports. He tossed a bullpen session Friday without issue and is now on track to get a couple of innings in with the Marlins before the season ends. Regardless of how much work he's able to get in over the final two weeks, 2015 was a success for the up-and-down flame thrower. He's posted a 1.16 ERA and 0.81 WHIP over 31 innings this season with a devastating 58 strikeouts in that time.
