Marlins Non-Tender Paulino and Veras

     No major surprises tonight as the Marlins officially parted company with catcher Ronny Paulino and reliever Jose Veras while tendering contracts to five other arbitration-eligible players and working out a one-year deal with another, reliever Burke Badenhop.

     Tendered contracts were Ricky Nolasco, Anibal Sanchez, Leo Nunez, Clay Hensley and Edward Mujica. The Marlins avoided arbitration with Badenhop by agreeing to terms with the right-hander on a one-year deal that will likely pay him in the neighborhood of $1 million.

      Paulino became expendable with the signing of John Buck while Veras was squeezed out of the bullpen picture by the addition of four relievers through a series of three trades.
