Negotiations went down to the wire on Friday before the Marlins were able to reach one-year contract agreements with Giancarlo Stanton and Steve Cishek. The deals mean the club came to terms with all three of its arbitration-eligible players, avoiding hearings in February. The Marlins haven't confirmed the deals. All three were arbitration-eligible for the first time, and they will receive significant raises in 2014. Per team policy, the Marlins don't release financial terms. But according to sources, Stanton will earn $6.5 million, Cishek will receive $3.8 million and Mike Dunn will make $1.4 million. In 2013, Stanton made $537,000, while Cishek received $505,000 and Dunn earned $492,500.

Cishek will close and have a good shot at 30 saves with strong ratios. As for Stanton, he walked a bit more last season which could lead to him finally "figuring it out." Stanton has failed to appear in 125 games each of the last two seasons so his health will likely be the determining factor we turn to when trying to assess his 2014 campaign.
