On Friday afternoon, Miami claimed first baseman Joe Mahoney off waivers from Baltimore. The 25-year-old appeared in two games with the Orioles last year, and he was hitless in four at-bats.
Adding Mahoney gives the Marlins 38 players on their 40-man roster.
Mahoney is a 6-foot-6, 240-pounder who batted .265 with 10 home runs and 56 RBIs at Triple-A in 2012. His best season was in ’10, when he batted .307 with 18 homers and 78 RBIs.
Mahoney also can play a corner outfield position.
