Aaron Rowand signed a minor league deal with the Marlins back in December, but it never got beyond that, as the Marlins released him today. Don’t cry for Rowand, though: he’s still being paid on that five-year, $60 million deal the Giants gave him.
He might be done playing, though. He hit .233/.274/.347 with four homers in 331 at-bats before being released by San Francisco last season. He still has an OK glove, but the man can’t hit anymore and in these days of 12 and 13-man pitching staffs, a defense-only outfielder is not a luxury a lot of teams can afford.
