Miami Marlins Release Veteran Infielder After One Month Stint With Team

That didn't last long.

Miami Marlins' infielder Jose Iglesias has opted out of his minor league contract according to various sources.

Despite performing well during spring training, Iglesias did not make the Marlins' major league roster and was not added to the 26-man roster when Joey Wendle was placed on the injured list.

As a result, he has been granted his release, making him a free agent, and is currently seeking opportunities with other teams.

Iglesias, who is known for his strong defensive skills and has a .989 fielding percentage over the past four seasons, also has a decent batting record.

The veteran holds a .292/.325/.408 triple-slash line, 26 home runs, 178 RBIs, 13 stolen bases, and 191 runs scored over 440 games across the last four seasons.

At 33 years old, Iglesias would still be a solid addition to any team's roster. He has already played in eleven major league seasons and has a wealth of experience.

Despite being a free agent, it's possible that he will find another opportunity with a team soon. Photo Credit: Jim Rassol-USA TODAY Sports
