First baseman Jesús Aguilar has been claimed by the Miami Marlins, sources tell ESPN. Aguilar was designated for assignment earlier this week by Tampa Bay. There's a clear path to the first-base job for him.
Source confirms the Marlins have claimed Jesus Aguilar, who was DFA’d recently by the Rays. @JeffPassan
was first with the news.
Marlins take a low cost low risk move claiming Jesus Aguilar. I’d still love to see what Garrett Cooper can do with 500 PA. If healthy of course. When the Rays let you go for nothing, tells you something. I see this more as insurance at 1B.

Movidito el día de hoy
Honestamente no pensé que los #Marlins fueran a buscar a Jesús Aguilar, pero así lo hicieron según informa @JeffPassan
. Interesante opción para ellos en 1B.
Ahora a ver cómo mueven sus piezas. Garrett Cooper puede tener más tiempo en el RF.
No news yet from the #Rays on tender decisions (8 pm deadline), but several former Rays have been non-tendered. Wishing best of success going forward to:
CJ Cron, Steven Souza Jr, Tim Beckham.
Meanwhile Jesus Aguilar has been claimed by the Marlins.
Given that Jesus Aguilar is only two years removed from 35 HR & it's low-risk investment, I think it's worth a shot for #Marlins.
If he performs, Garrett Cooper can slide to RF. If he doesn't, they can cut ties and shift Coop back to 1B.
The #Marlins have claimed #Rays 1B Jesus Aguilar
The #Marlins have begun fortifying their offense by claiming power-hitting first baseman Jesus Aguilar off waivers
Jesus Aguilar is honestly a perfect fit and a perfect candidate for a bounce back season.
30 HR’s ???? 👀
With Jesus Aguilar, #Marlins 40-man roster is now at 41, so they need to clear out a spot.
8pm non-tender deadline approaching, Adam Conley or JT Riddle could be options.
Veo a Jesús Aguilar en la NPB. De momento parece que tendrá otro chance de establecerse en MLB. Ojalá logré aprovechar que @LosMarlins
están construyendo para el futuro. Aunque eso no quiere decir que no tendrá una dura competencia.
91% of Jesús Aguilar's career production by bWAR came during the 2018 season, which has accounted for 43% of his to-date career PA.
In other words, in the remaining 57% of his career plate appearances - 2014-17, 2019 - he's contributed 0.3 total WAR.
Os Marlins pegaram o 1B Jesus Aguilar dos Rays, o jogador havia sido cortado do elenco de Tampa.
Because it’s Mike Hill. Marlins need to get rid of him. Not gonna win games with Jesus Aguilar sorry. He’s a DH/pinch hitter at best.
With the non-tender deadline fast approaching, someone's getting moved off the #Marlins 40-man roster. #JuntosMiami
Marlins claim former All-Star first baseman Jesus Aguilar off waivers
The #Marlins have claimed first baseman Jesús Aguilar off waivers from the #Rays, @JeffPassan
The #Marlins have claimed 1B/DH Jesus Aguilar.
Marlins now claim 1B Jesus Aguilar off of waivers. They hope he can return to form this season after a down year in Tampa, hitting .236 with just 12 HRs a year removed from 35 HRs with Milwaukee. #Bigman https://t.co/7hYlfMDFxQ
