The Miami Marlins agreed to a three-year, $21 million deal with free-agent C Jarrod Saltalamacchia (Red Sox).
Fantasy Tip: Salty's power is nice for his position, but the move to Miami will temper some of that thump, and his average is bound to come down from last season's .273 mark. Rob Brantly and Jeff Mathis are still on the roster, too, meaning Mathis could form some sort of platoon with Salty if he continues to struggle against southpaws.
