Robertson designated for assignment

A day after his toughest outing of the season, Nate Robertson was designated for assignment.

Coming off a 10-0 loss to the Rockies on Tuesday night, Robertson allowed a season most eight runs, with seven earned over five innings.

Robertson was 6-8 with a 5.47 ERA in 19 games, including 18 starts. He threw 100 1/3 innings.

The Marlins acquired Robertson from the Tigers for lefty prospect Jay Voss towards the end of Spring Training.

The Marlins also placed catcher Brett Hayes on the 15-day disabled list with a left wrist contusion.

Right-hander Jorge Sosa and catcher Brad Davis each had their contracts selected from Triple-A New Orleans.

Marlins open to making moves

The deeper they fall in the standing, the greater the chance the Marlins will be open to making moves.

In fact, there are rumbings from within the organization that they may be willing to listen to offers for just about everyone not named Josh Johnson or Hanley Ramirez. Besides those two — plus players who are not yet in their arbitration years — the club could be ready to make some changes.

There are indications that Ricky Nolasco, who has one year remaining in arbitration, could be dealt for the right price. The Marlins are in no rush to move the 27-year-old right-hander, but they would certainly listen to what is available.

Jorge Cantu is eligible for free agency after the season. While the Marlins are high on the veteran, who has been a steady run producer, they might not be in position to sign him to a multi-year deal if his salary reaches more than $10 million. Cantu appears to be the most likely Marlin to be moved before the end of the season.

Dan Uggla and Cody Ross — like Nolasco — have one year of arbitration remaining. There is no immediate urgency to trade either player. But both may bring back some parts to build upon for the future.

Nate Robertson, acquired late in Spring Training from Detroit, also could be an attractive trade piece should the Marlins be out of the race by the end of the month.

Veteran Wes Helms, a free agent after the season, may also draw interest on the trade market. The Marlins are high on Helms, and envision him someday being a coach in their system. Even if he is traded, the club may look to sign him back in the offseason.

The team certainly is looking for bullpen help, but that’s not the only area they hope to address. Offensively, they are hoping to become more balanced and less streaky.

Marlins look to rebound Friday

After being swept by the Rangers, the Marlins look to snap their three-game losing streak against the Rays on Friday at Sun Life Stadium.

The Marlins took two of three at Tropicana Field last weekend. But in recent years, the Rays have controlled the Citrus Series. Tampa Bay won two of three in Miami last season.

The last time the Marlins won a home series vs. the Rays was in 2006, when they took two of three.

Rained out Wednesday

For the second time this season, the Marlins have had a game postponed because of rain.

Wednesday’s game at Philadelphia was washed out. No makeup date has been set yet. But a possible date for a doubleheader will be on Sept. 6, when the Marlins return to Philadelphia.

The Marlins rotation has now shuffled for the new few days.

Josh Johnson, who was scheduled to pitch on Wednesday, will throw on Thursday. The Phillies are countering with Roy Halladay.

The Marlins weekend rotation at Tampa Bay now will be Anibal Sanchez (Friday), Ricky Nolasco (Saturday) and Chris Volstad (Sunday). Nate Robertson is being skipped one start, and he is available in the bullpen.

The Marlins previously were rained out on April 23 at Colorado. They made that up on April 24 with a doubleheader.
