Florida Marlins roster finalized

The Florida Marlins finalized their roster for opening day.

Reliever Carlos Martinez was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans, and reliever Brian Sanches was reassigned to Minor League camp. 

The bad news of the night was right-hander Rick VandenHurk is going on the disabled list with right elbow discomfort.

If I remember correctly the Marlins sent four players to the WBC and three ended up hurt.  I be loving the WBC.

In the case of VandenHurk, it may workout for the best since he was being tutored by Bleyleven.  Now, I'm not saying in the case of VandenHurk the WBC was necessarily the cause of him ending up on the DL to start the season.  Then again, he threw a lot pitches at full effort way too early in March.

Now back to the roster.

Florida will carry 13 position players and 12 pitchers. 

The position players are: Hanley Ramirez, Dan Uggla, Jorge Cantu, Emilio Bonifacio, John Baker, Jeremy Hermida, Cameron Maybin, Cody Ross, Wes Helms, Ross Gload, Brett Carroll, Ronny Paulino and Gonzalez.

The rotation will feature, in order, Ricky Nolasco, Josh Johnson, Chris Volstad, Anibal Sanchez and Andrew Miller. 


...the relievers will be closer Matt Lindstrom, Leo Nunez, Logan Kensing, (Kiko) Calero, Hayden Penn, Renyel Pinto and Dan Meyer.
