Lefty wanted

It makes sense for the Marlins to shop for a left-handed reliever. They have just one left-handed short man in the bullpen, and the problem is Renyel Pinto gets hit by lefties. They are batting .230 against him while right-handers are hitting  just .185, and left-handers have hit four of the five home runs Pinto has allowed.

Mark Hendrickson is the only other lefty in the pen, but he works in longer relief roles, and what the Marlins need is an eighth-inning situational lefty or setup type lefty.
