JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — Dan Straily was released Monday by the Miami Marlins, who will give the pitcher $1,209,677 in termination pay rather than his $5 million salary.The 30-year old right-hander was 15-15 in two seasons with the Marlins, who acquired him from Cincinnati in January 2017. He was limited to 23 starts last year, when he went on the disabled list twice because of forearm and oblique strains.Straily had a 5.94 ERA over 16 2/3 innings in five spring training appearances.All five members of the Marlins starting rotation are 27 and younger."We're going to be built with our starting pitching," Miami president of baseball operations Michael Hill said Monday. "These guys are part of our future and we want to give them every opportunity to continue to grow and to get better, help us win ballgames."Straily is 42-36 with a 4.23 ERA in seven major league seasons.The Marlins saw improvement in the breaking balls of Trevor Richards and Pablo Lopez, a better delivery from Sandy Alcantara and a healthy Caleb Smith."We have five starters that we really like," Hill said. "We have depth at Triple A that we really like and Double-A and High A."Miami is sending Wei-Yin Chen to the bullpen. Manager Don Mattingly said Chen will be able to make some spot start, if needed.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — It wasn't an offseason weight-loss program, but pitcher David Price is entering the 2019 season much lighter.A tremendous burden has been lifted from his shoulders. The Boston Red Sox lefty has finally gotten rid of the postseason demons that had been haunting him for much of his 11-season career."I do (feel that way), so yeah," Price said. "It felt good to go out there and perform on that level. I know how many doubters are out there and whatnot, and that's fine. It felt good to go out there and to be able to prove myself right. That was what it was all about."Helping the Red Sox to the 2018 World Series championship — the first of Price's career — can have that effect. Price earned two of his team's four World Series wins — including the Game 5 clincher against the Dodgers — appearing in three games, with two starts, posting a 1.98 ERA. Some thought he was a legitimate candidate for the World Series MVP honor which went to teammate Steve Pearce.Befor... [More]

He finished eighth in NL Rookie of the Year voting in 2017 after hitting .253 with 24 homers in 115 games.The 2015 first-round pick is batting .135 this spring with a .389 OPS. The demotion will allow the switch hitter to get regular playing time at Triple-A instead of being limited on Chicago's deep major league roster.Right-handers Alec Mills and Dillon Maples and catcher Taylor Davis were also optioned to Triple-A Iowa, and righty Junichi Tazawa was granted his release.
