• Reliever Brian Sanches, who pitched for the Marlins from 2009 to 2011, has officially announced his retirement. The 35-year-old broke in with the Phillies in 2006 and pitched for the Nationals in 2008 before hooking up with the Marlins. He last pitched in the big leagues in 2012, with the Phillies.
• Right-hander Carlos Marmol is expected to be back on the field on Thursday. He had been in the Dominican Republic the past few days to clear up some visa matters. The hope is to get him into a Grapefruit League game over the weekend.
