Player Notes
Marlins signed LHP Jeff Locke to a one-year, $3 million contract.

Advice: "[Locke] gives us another starting option who we think is in line for a bounce-back year, and he has the ability to give us quality innings," said president of baseball operations Michael Hill at Wednesday's introductory press conference. The 29-year-old southpaw was non-tendered by the Pirates at the beginning of December after pitching to a 5.44 ERA across 127 1/3 frames in 2016. He will compete for a spot at the back of the rotation with the Marlins this spring.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Marlins have a deal with left-hander Jeff Locke, pending a physical.

Advice: Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports hears that it's a one-year deal worth around $3 million. Locke was non-tendered by the Pirates last week posting a 5.44 ERA over 127 1/3 innings in 2016, but he's had better results in the past and it's worth noting that he'll be reunited with Jim Benedict in Miami. It's a reasonable gamble in a weak market for starting pitching.

MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports that Jeff Locke is "a possible fit" with the Marlins.

Advice: Locke was non-tendered by the Pirates last week after putting up a 5.44 ERA over 127 1/3 innings in 2016. He had a much better career 4.16 ERA before last season, however, and is just 29. The left-hander can surely be had cheaply.

Mon, Dec 5 Rotoworld
Pirates non-tendered LHP Jeff Locke.

Advice: The club designated Locke for assignment earlier in the week but weren't able to find a trade partner prior to Friday's deadline. He'll look for another opportunity on the free agent market.
