(4/3/14) Marlins catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia will sit Thursday against the Rockies.
Saltalamacchia will be replaced in the lineup by Jeff Mathis, who will hit eighth. The Marlins play seven games this week, so the team wants to be sure Salty gets a break. He has two hits in his first three games with the club.
|Jarrod Saltalamacchia ready to build rapport with pitching staff |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/16/14) New Marlins starting catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia said his focus this spring will be building rapport with the team's pitching staff, per The Palm Beach Post.
"I never focused on the hitting side of it," Saltalamacchia said about spring training. "That’s something that will happen. What I’ve done my whole career is allow the hitting to take care of itself. I still put the work in but my focus is pitchers. I’ve got to take care of them. We’re not going to win without those guys. We’ve seen it in years past, you can put whatever offense you have out there but if you don’t have any pitching you’re not going to win."
|Jarrod Saltalamacchia signs three-year deal with Miami |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(12/3/13) Jarrod Saltalamacchia will be heading back home. The South Florida native has agreed to terms with the Marlins on a three-year deal worth $21 million, according to the Sun Sentinel on Tuesday. The deal is pending a physical.
Saltalamacchia chose the Marlins over the Twins. The former Red Sox catcher batted .273/.338/.466 with 14 home runs and 65 RBI in 425 at-bats in 2013.
|Marlins nearing deal with Jarrod Saltalamacchia |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(12/3/13) The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that the Marlins made an offer of a three-year deal worth $21 million to free agent catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, and according to FOXSports.com, the two parties are very close to reaching an agreement.
Saltalamacchia did not receive a qualifying offer of a one-year, $14.1 million deal from the Red Sox, so the Marlins would not have to forfeit a draft pick to sign him.
|Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit .273 (a career best) in 2013, with 14 home runs and 65 RBI. He saw a career-high 425 at-bats, and his OPS went over the .800 mark (at .804) for the first time in seven seasons. An offseason signing with the Marlins will cement Saltalamacchia as a starting catcher, so he's in line for another career-high in at-bats, but the 28-year-old will be taken away from the cozy confines of Fenway Park and transplanted to a much more pitcher-friendly Marlins Park. Saltalamacchia's BABIP of .372 last year may point to a dip in batting average this season, and he stands to lose a few home runs. Still, full-time at-bats for a catcher are worth something in Fantasy, and Saltalamacchia should be among the top 15 catchers taken.
