05:27 PM ET 11.14 | Looking to add some pitching depth less than 24 hours after decimating their entire roster in a blockbuster trade, the Miami Marlins claimed Scott Maine off of waivers from the Toronto Blue Jays. The left-hander had been designated for assignment by the Blue Jays less than a week ago after bouncing from Chicago to Cleveland and then Toronto last season. The 27-year-old has 46.2 innings of work at the Major League level for his career, in 50 relief appearances over the past three seasons. He's 2-3 with a 5.59 ERA in that span, with 9.3 K/9 and 4.8 BB/9. His minor league numbers, however, have been more appealing. Over six seasons since being taken in the sixth round of the 2007 draft, Maine posted a 19-15 overall record, 3.26 ERA, and added 40 saves to go along with 10.1 K/9 and 4.0 BB/9.

Maybe he can find a niche for himself as a lefty specialist or something.

And Ozzie is laughing somewhere in a sunny place. He is due $7.5 million over the next three years.

Havana?

lol

When I was in the Navy the old guys still remembered when we would port in Havana--said it was a really great town. One Master Chief PO claimed to have sat in a bar with Ernest Hemingway.

Things may have changed a bit since those days, though.
