 MIAMI (AP) - At the winter meetings next week in Nashville, Tenn., the Miami Marlins will be in the market for bench help.
The Marlins' brief era as big spenders ended this year when the team with the biggest payroll in franchise history flopped. That prompted the Marlins' latest dismantling, which included a blockbuster selloff trade with Toronto two weeks ago.
The trade left Miami with a projected payroll of about $43 million, which meets owner Jeffrey Loria's budget for 2013. So the team's unlikely to swing any big deals at the meetings that begin Monday.
The Marlins made a big splash at the meetings in Dallas a year ago, when they signed shortstop Jose Reyes, left-hander Mark Buehrle and closer Heath Bell to deals totaling $191 million.
