Marlins May Have Middlebrooks On Their Radar

With their primary third base target—Juan Uribe—scooped up by the Dodgers, the Miami Marlins may be scrambling to settle their hot corner problem. According to's Joe Frisaro, one of the potential solutions is trading for Boston's Will Middlebrooks. Before that could happen, the Red Sox would have to re-sign SS Stephen Drew—which would allow Xander Bogaerts to move to third. In fact, many talent evaluators have stated that Bogaerts is better-suited to third base—and even his old teammate Jose Iglesias thinks so. If Drew does come back to the World Champs, and the Marlins have not yet solved their problem, this trade just might happen.
