Weird deadline for the Marlins. They got Cashner and Rea last Friday, Rea hurts his elbow in his first start on Saturday, and the Marlins get one player they traded on Friday back in exchange for sending the injured Rea back to the Padres.
They really needed another back-end starter and seemed to be in on most of them at the deadline, but didn't pull the trigger. I'm sure with the need for starters overriding the supply, as well as the idea that the starting pitching market will be terrible coming up in free agency, teams were asking for a goldmine. And the Marlins are hurt by having an extremely poor farm system.
