The Marlins signing of Nate Robertson early on has looked to be a very nice addition to the teams rotation. But the Marlins still have a lot of work to do in the bullpen, and besides Burke Badenhop and Leo Nunez who has been lights out, the Marlins bullpen has struggled. With Mike Stanton completely tearing it up in the Minor Leagues right now he really puts a lot of pressure on the Marlins to call him up to the big leagues. If the Marlins make this move and call up Stanton they can then make several moves to help benefit there team even more. The easiest option, and the option that has them parting with the least amount of talent is simply calling up Stanton and moving Ross for an average bullpen pitcher. The other option, which would free up the Marlins from a decent sized contract, is to call up Stanton and move Chris Coghlan into his original infield position of second base and move Dan Uggla while he is hot and has decent value. Uggla, who has been on a tare to start the 2010 season is a guy who is going to give a team 30+ HR and bat .250 a year and with his average defense would not be to much of a loss especially considering a guy like Stanton can hit 20+ HR a year, if not more. The Marlins could possibly get a strong set up man for the bullpen or a young prospect or two. Either way there are two things the Marlins have to be trying to deal with right now and that is where can Mike Stanton fit in and what are they going to do about there bullpen? For now we will have to sit back and just wait and watch what happens.
