There are not many free agents left to sign on the open market. The Miami Marlins took a flyer on one of those free agents.

The Marlins have signed former All-Star pitcher Trevor Rosenthal. He has agreed to a one-year deal.

He is recovering from Tommy John surgery. He will make $88,900 if he stays in the minor leagues all season.

However, if he makes it to the Majors by the end of the season, he’ll make a league minimum of $545,000.

The 27-year-old went 3-4 in 50 games last season. He also finished 16 games and had 11 saves.

He had 3.40 ERA in 47 2/3 innings. Rosenthal allowed 18 earned runs and 20 runs overall while striking out 76 batters and walking 20.

Rosenthal spent the first six-years of his career with the Cardinals. He had Tommy John surgery last August, and it is normally a year recovery.

He battled Seung Hwan Oh for the closer’s role the past two seasons after each struggled before his surgery.

In his career, he is 11-24 with 2.99 ERA. He has 121 saves and 181 game finishes in 325 innings.

He has allowed 108 earned runs and 115 runs in his career. Rosenthal has struck out 435 batters and walked 143.
