From MLB trade rumor page:
Reynel Pinto was designated for assignment by Florida.
Pinto, 27 next month, had a 2.80 ERA in 15.2 innings for Florida this year, striking out 16 to eight walks. He has actually fared better against righthanded batters in his career than lefties. Pinto is owed approximately $640K for the remainder of the season, and he will be under team control for both the 2011 and 2012 seasons.

With the good stats he has, why would the Marlins DFA him. I think he'd be a great pick up if healthy.

He is their 7th reliever even though his era is pretty good

Struggles against lefties this year. Has a .253 BAA against lefties for his career, though.
