How is that possible he is too expensive, he makes less than a million for the Marlins? If we can't afford that money for a platoon player, but we had the cash for Patterson in CF and Affeldt in the pen. Also, you know we'll unload Hatterburg at some point this year.
This is close to the Brendan Harris issue, we waive a cheap utility guy to only pay Castro 1M to perform way less. We acquired a cheap RH infielder only to throw him out when he could have helped us out thus far.
