Looking over the box scores of recent nights since his return, our own MarlinAddict noticed that something unusual is going on with Gaby Sanchez – he’s playing 3B.
Not only does he have a 9 game hitting streak going (interrupted by his injury) but perhaps he’s being groomed to come up as a 3B. Jorge Cantu is currently manning 1B but how much can he actually factor into the long term plans for the future? Maybe this is a feeler for the Marlins brass to see if they can replace Bonifacio’s defense – which would seem to indicate the Marlins are willing to gamble to improve the defense rather than actually acquire someone who can improve the defense.
Joe Capozzi seems to notice the same thing, even if it was prompted by an email from MarlinAddict himself. Still, it seems coupled with a possible trade there could be teeth to this move.
