The Miami Marlins continue to have interest in free-agent 3B Juan Uribe (Dodgers), according to a league source. If the Marlins sign him, he would be expected to serve as the primary third baseman and could see additional time at first base when 1B Garrett Jones is out of the lineup against tough left-handed pitchers. Uribe is believed to be seeking a two or three-year deal.

The Miami Marlins traded 1B Logan Morrison to the Seattle Mariners Wednesday, Dec. 11, in exchange for RP Carter Capps.
Fantasy Tip: Capps has the skills to pitch in the ninth but will fall into a setup role to Steve Cishek. Garrett Jones will take over full time at first base for Morrison. Moving to a pitcher-friendly environment lowers Jones' power impact, which has been his main contributing factor to fantasy owners.
