Blalock on Marlins radar
Mike Lamb and Jorge Jimenez are in Marlins camp as contenders to being the left-handed bat off the bench.
Another name to keep an eye on is Hank Blalock.
Jon Heyman of SI.com and the MLB Network reports the Marlins are interested in Blalock. MLB.com confirmed that the left-handed hitting veteran is on their radar. But the team is only looking at him as a role player.
The Marlins are seeking a lefty bat off the bench, not a regular. So Blalock isn’t being looked at to play either third base or first base, positions he commonly was at throughout his career with the Rangers.
Jorge Cantu is the Marlins third baseman, while Gaby Sanchez and Logan Morrison are battling for the first base job.
