Ruggiano being shopped at Meetings
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — The Marlins are expected to explore a number of possible moves on Wednesday, the last full day of the Winter Meetings at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort.
According to a league source, Miami is listening to offers for outfielder Justin Ruggiano, who is in arbitration for the first time.
Ruggiano belted 18 home runs last season, and if he remains with Miami, he would be a backup at all three outfield positions.
The Marlins are in the market for a third baseman and a reliever.
The team is believed to have interest in free agent third baseman Eric Chavez.
Miami also continues to weigh offers for first baseman Logan Morrison, who has drawn interest from more than 10 clubs.
