The Palm Beach Post’s Joe Capozzi reports Chris Coghlan’s bizarre knee injury won’t change the Marlins’ strategy regarding third baseman Jorge Cantu.
Capozzi reports Coghlan would have moved from left field to third base if Cantu were to be traded before Saturday’s nonwaiver deadline. Now, the idea is to platoon Donnie Murphy and Wes Helms at third in place of Cantu, who was benched Tuesday by interim manager Edwin Rodriguez.
Logan Morrison was called up Tuesday to replace Coghlan on the roster. Morrison will be the Marlins’ everyday left fielder, Capozzi reports via Twitter.
There’s still a possibility Cantu will stay in Florida. Capozzi says the Marlins could keep him if they can’t make a suitable deal.
