Dan Straily: Let go by Miami
Marlins president of baseball operations Mike Hill confirmed Monday that Straily was released by the team rather than designated for assignment, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
Though Straily was due only $5 million in salary for 2019, the Marlins apparently couldn't find any teams willing to acquire the right-hander after shopping him around. Now that the 30-year-old is officially a free agent, he shouldn't have trouble landing at least a minor-league deal after turning in a cumulative 4.30 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 8.0 K/9 across 56 starts with the Marlins the past two seasons. It's possible that a team in need of extra starting-pitching depth even extends Straily the opportunity to fill a back-end rotation spot right away, though it likely wouldn't come with much job security.
