Catching options

The Marlins may be in the market for a catcher, but it doesn’t look like veteran Josh Bard fits the mold.

The Red Sox placed Bard on waivers on Wednesday, which was the last day for a ballclub to place player on unconditional waivers and pay 30 days termination pay instead of 45 days. In January, Bard signed a one-year, $1.7 million non-guaranteed contract.

Indications are the Marlins have no interest in Bard as a backup to John Baker.

Florida has pursued Ivan Rodriguez, but the veteran opted to go to the Astros.

Mike Rabelo is a frontrunner to be the No. 2 catcher.
