LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - Jarrod Saltalamacchia hopes to stick around with the Miami Marlins.
Miami went on a spending spree after the 2011 season and added All-Stars Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle and Heath Bell. When that didn't lead to success, the Marlins jettisoned most of their stars and cut payroll to about $42 million this year.
Now Miami is in addition mode again, agreeing last week to a $21 million, three-year contract with the catcher, who helped Boston win the World Series title. The Marlins don't give no-trade clauses, so another sell-off always is a possibility if Miami fails to improve on this year's 62-100 record and last-place finish in the NL East.
