Marlins DFA Former All-Star

The Miami Marlins have cut loose 9-year major league veteran first baseman Jesus Aguilar. 

The 32-year-old is having a down year for Miami, following two very productive seasons.  

After a 35 HR All-Star campaign in 2018 with the Milwaukee Brewers, Aguilar eventually landed with the Marlins for the 2020 shortened season. He batted .277 with an .809 OPS that year, and followed up in '21 with a 22 HR, 93 RBI season. 

But Aguilar has fallen on hard times in 2022, batting just .236 with 15 HR and a .674 OPS, about 100 points below his career average. 

If he clears waivers, he could be a nice pickup for a contender down the stretch if he can regain some of his mojo at the plate.
