Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald has the scoop:
The Marlins often like to pursue players who had one bad year after a good one, hoping to get them at a reasonable price. So it’s not surprising they called about Yankees free agent right-hander Phil Hughes, who went 4-14 with a 5.19 ERA in 2013 after going 16-13 in 2012.
Hughes might find Miami appealing because Marlins Park is the most pitcher-friendly stadium in the major leagues and he’ll have a good opportunity to rebuild his value on a one-year deal. The 27-year-old has also drawn interest this offseason from the Twins, Royals and Mets. He has a 4.54 career ERA, 1.32 career WHIP and 7.6 career K/9 in 780 2/3 major league innings.
