NL East: Alfonseca's bad back

A "significant herniation" in Antonio Alfonseca's lower back, found during a recent physical, has put his status with the Marlins in jeopardy. Although a two-year, $4.75 million contract had been agreed upon last week, Florida has a policy of only announcing signings after a player has passed his physical.

Supposedly the Marlins are looking to rework the offer into an incentive-laden, one-year contract.
