UPDATES & NEWS
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.ANALYST: Ray Flowers
Sean Marshall (shoulder) has resumed throwing from flat ground.
Marshall was shut down at the beginning of spring training with shoulder soreness, but has resumed throwing. Last June, Marshall underwent season ending shoulder surgery after making just 15 appearances in 2014. The only thing scarier than last season's 7.71 ERA is the fact that he has had some sort of shoulder injury in each of the last three seasons. Leave this guy off your draft board.

Nathan Eovaldi has been working on improving his splitter during spring training.
Eovaldi is more of a thrower than a pitcher right now, but the Yankees are hoping he can develop into a mainstay in their rotation. Even though he hasn't had a winning season in his four year career, his velocity is hope for optimism. Eovaldi got knocked around a lot last year, but he doesn't walk many batters, something else the Yankees are excited about. Eovaldi is going late in drafts and there is some solid value to be had if he can take the next step forward. Analysis: Colby Conway
