Dan Straily was a curious acquisition for the Miami Marlins this past offseason. What to make of a former 24th-round draft pick who had been traded three previous times?

Miami Marlins: The bullpen is ruining the season quickly

The Miami Marlins are unraveling about as quickly as any team in the MLB. Miguel Rojas and Martin Prado each got injured in the same game, and the Marlins have lost 11 of their last 14 games to inch closer to the NL East basement.
