Mancini signed a two-year deal with the Cubs prior to the 2023 season, but struggled mightily at the plate, slashing .234/.299/.336 and hitting four home runs in 263 total plate appearances.
Mancini was designated for assignment and released by the Cubs in August, and was released a week after signing a minor league deal with the Cincinnati Reds later that month.
The Cubs are still on the hook for Mancini’s 2024 MLB salary of $7 million, minus the league-minimum he would make if he makes the Marlins’ roster out of spring training.
In his career, Mancini has 129 home runs and 400 RBI’s, slashing .263/.328/.448.
