• Veteran third baseman Placido Polanco reportedly has been placed on waivers. It is not known if he has been claimed.
• If Christian Yelich hadn't signed with the Marlins after being a first-round Draft pick in 2010, he had committed to play at the University of Miami. Hurricanes baseball coach Jim Morris was at Marlins batting practice on Friday, and he spoke briefly to Yelich, who would have just completed his junior year. Had Yelich become a Hurricane, he likely would have started off playing first base, instead of the outfield.
