Analysis: Saltalamacchia signed a $21 million, three-year contract as a free agent before the 2014 season. He played poorly last year and lost his starting job early this season to rookie J.T. Realmuto. The Marlins will try to trade Saltalamacchia but likely will wind up releasing the south Florida native. Either way, they probably will be responsible for the approximately $14.2 million remaining on his contract, which runs through 2016.
