November 1, 2019
Wallach (concussion) was reinstated from the 60-day inured list Friday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Players can't spend the offseason on the injured list, so the move indicates nothing about Wallach's health. A concussion the catcher suffered in late May lingered for the rest of the season, and he played in just four rehab games the rest of the season, with just one of those coming after the All-Star break.

Marlins' Team Preview: Marlins 3.0
March 15, 2015
Is this the start of a third run to a World Series for the Marlins? If so, players like Marcel Ozuna will need continued steps forward.
2018 Fantasy Outlook
In November, Wallach was claimed off waivers by the Marlins and thus reunited with the organization that drafted him in the fifth round in 2013. Wallach got his first taste of big-league action with the Reds last season, but spent the bulk of the year with the team's Triple-A Louisville affiliate. He hit for more power than ever with Louisville, muscling nine homers in 243 at-bats, but the increased pop came with more strikeouts (25.5 percent strikeout rate). The swing-and-miss was a big problem in his limited sample in the big leagues. After showing good patience at the lower levels, Wallach's walk rate fell to just 5.3 percent at Triple-A. J.T. Realmuto has expressed his desire to be included as part of the mass exodus from Miami, and if Realmuto is dealt, Wallach could crack the Opening Day roster. However, he should be considered a big batting average risk.
