JUPITER, Fla. -- What's already assembled is basically the pitching options the Marlins intend to stick with in Spring Training. There's a chance another signing could be made, but it's not a high priority.
The Marlins continue to survey the market for possible pitching upgrades, but the organization is pleased with what it already has in camp. There are still veterans like Tim Lincecum out there, but Miami is showing no urgency to make any further moves.
"We're still assessing the market and making sure we're on top of the market," president of baseball operations Michael Hill said. "Right now, if it's something that makes us better and it's an upgrade and it can add to what we already have, we'll pursue it. But we are very happy with where we are."
"I think Chen was a big add for us, and we were able to add depth with Edwin Jackson," Hill said. "You allow some very talented young pitchers to continue to compete, the Cosarts, the Nicolinos, the Conleys, the [Jose] Urenas -- it gives those guys an opportunity to compete because we feel they will be and are productive Major League pitchers."
