Florida Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez said he might bat OF Michael Stanton second or seventh when he makes the move up to the big leagues, which is expected to come in early to mid June, according to The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson. OFs Chris Coghlan and Cameron Maybin may be moved into a platoon to give Stanton playing time.
The team made a roster move after tonight’s game, optioning outfielder Bryan Petersen to Class AAA New Orleans. A player will be called up tomorrow to take Petersen’s place.
But I don’t think Mike Stanton is the player coming up tomorrow. I think the team will look to replace left-hitting Petersen with another lefty bat to come off the bench.
As reporters were leaving manager Fredi Gonzalez’s office after his post-game session, someone asked if the player to be called up had the initials ‘M S’.
Gonzalez kind of frowned and shook his head ‘no,’ before injecting some humor with the reply: “You mean Mike Schmidt?”
