No interest in Branyan
The Marlins are not seeking to bring in veteran first baseman Russell Branyan, which was speculated a few days ago in an ESPN.com report.
According to a source, the Marlins didn’t make an offer to Branyan. The team didn’t even have a serious conversation with the slugger, who was with the Mariners in 2009.
The Marlins are in the market for a left-handed bat off the bench. The club is planning on having Gaby Sanchez and Logan Morrison compete for the first base job.
