The Marlins are obviously a rebuilding team following their house cleaning that took place this offseason, but several veterans, including right-hander Freddy Garcia and outfielder/designated hitter Bobby Abreu, have shown interest in playing in Miami, according to Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald. The Marlins are hearing from agents from several older veteran free agents who “would love to play here.” Both Garcia and Abreu call Miami home and are interested in playing for the Marlins in 2013, according to Jackson. Garcia appeared in 30 games, including 17 starts, for the New York Yankees last season, maintaining an ERA of 5.20 over 107 1/3 innings. He did turn in a quality performance in 2011, posting a 3.62 ERA over 26 appearances, including 25 starts, spanning 146 2/3 innings. Abreu hit .242/.350/.342 with 11 doubles and three home runs over 219 at-bats with the Los Angeles Angels and Dodgers last season. While he’s lost most of his pop, Abreu continues to get on base at a better-than-average clip.
