Piedra released as Marlins make cutsNews: The Marlins optioned RHP Jesus Delgado to Double-A Carolina, released OF Jorge Piedra and reassigned RHP Marcos Carvajal, RHP Tim Corcoran, LHP Chris Seddon, RHP Dallas Trahern, C Brad Davis, C Chris Hatcher, 1B Lee Mitchell, INF Rex Rundgren, 1B Gabriel Sanchez to minor league camp. Analysis: Piedra has pop, but he and all these other players are nothing more than organizational depth at this point. Trahern and Sanchez have long-term potential in keeper leagues, though.
Cantu among Marlins spring inviteesNews: The Marlins signed infielder Jorge Cantu, infielder Chris Barnwell, 1B Tagg Bozied, infielder Rex Rundgren, 3B Jason Wood, OF John Gall, OF Alexis Gomez, OF Jorge Piedra, C Paul Hoover, RHP Tim Corcoran, RHP Marcus Gwyn, RHP Bobby Keppel, RHP Joe Nelson and RHP Doug Waechter to minor league contracts with invitations to spring training. Analysis: Cantu has a legit shot at beating out Jose Castillo for the Marlins' third base job, which gives him sleeper value in deeper Fantasy leagues. The other players here are nothing more than organizational depth at this point and can be ignored in all Fantasy leagues.
