He slashed .262/.330/.490 with 29 home runs, 86 RBI, 68 runs and eight stolen bases in 135 games last year, and he'll be rewarded with a long-term deal from the Marlins.

  • Brewers' Avisail Garcia: May elect free agency

    Garcia's club optioned converted to a mutual option after he reached a plate-appearance threshold Wednesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

    The Brewers formerly held a $12 million club option for Garcia for next season, but that turned into a mutual option after Garcia reached 1,050 plate appearances over the last two seasons, with last year's total of 207 being prorated to 559 due to the shortened schedule. Garcia is hitting .270/.337/.506 with 29 homers this season, so there's a good chance he can earn more than $12 million on the open market.
