Confirmed: Jacque Jones a Marlin

The Marlins just announced that Jacque Jones is going to be playing in teal for the rest of this season.

A career .278 hitter, Jones is expected to man the CF position full time and be a candidate for the leadoff spot the Marlins have been looking to fill. They feel more consistency at the top spot will allow Hanley to permanently be seeded into the third spot in the order.

There is also a bit of desperation in the move as Josh Willingham continues to be out with a lower back strain. Jones can play LF until he returns and when Willingham does return expect Jones to move over to CF full time.
