Right-hander Fernando Rodney is a free agent after the Miami Marlins declined his $2 million option.

Rodney, 39, had a 5.89 ERA in 39 games after being acquired by the Marlins in June in a trade with the San Diego Padres for minor league right-hander Chris Paddack. Rodney has a career ERA of 3.69 in 14 seasons.

The Marlins will pay a $400,000 buyout.
