Detwiler signs with Marlins; Leon gets minor league deal

January 3

MIAMI (AP) — Veteran left-hander Ross Detwiler has signed an $850,000, one-year contract with the Miami Marlins, whose primary offseason goal is to upgrade their bullpen.

The Marlins also announced on Sunday the signing of veteran catcher Sandy Leon to a minor league contract with an invitation to major league spring training. Left-hander Stephen Tarpley was designated for assignment.

Detwiler, 34, pitched in 16 games out of the bullpen for the Chicago White Sox in 2020, going 1-1 with a 3.20 ERA in 44 innings. He broke into the majors in 2007 and has a 4.56 ERA in 224 games for seven teams.

Detwiler can earn $100,000 in performance bonuses for games as a pitcher: $50,000 each for 60 and 70 games.

Leon, 31, batted .136 in 25 games last year for Cleveland. He has a .216 career average in nine seasons with three teams.

Scores season-low two points Kennard finished with two points (1-7 FG, 0-5 3Pt), one rebound and one block in 16 minutes during Friday's 120-106 win over the Thunder.
Impact Friday's performance may have been Kennard's worst of the season, as he was completely ineffective in his 16 minutes. Considering how reliant Kennard is on three-pointers for his offense, he'll be prone to some dud fantasy performances. And while he's a decent playmaker, the Clippers' offense has no shortage of players to handle the ball, so there will be nights where he can't rack up a meaningful number of assists.
