    Default Placido Polanco, 3B

    Placido Polanco was scheduled to return to action March 6 after being sidelined a few days because of a tight back.

    Placido's return would be a huge relief for the Marlins. They signed him to a one-year, $2.75 million contract in December even though he played in just 17 games after the All Star break last year for the Philadelphia Phillies.

    "Obviously, he's a guy who has been banged up a little bit in the past. We want to make sure we take care of him," manager Mike Redmond said March 3.

    "We need him to be healthy for us during the course of the season. If we have to hold him back a little bit in spring training to make sure we get him when it counts, during the season, that's what's going to be most important."

    Polanco said the stiffness he felt after practice on March 2 was not the same discomfort that bothered him the past three years.

    "It's not bad," Polanco said. "If it was the season today I could play today."


    Polanco won three Gold Gloves, at second base in 2007 and 2009 and at third base in 2011. But he time on the field has diminished -- from 153 games in 2009 to 132 games in 2010, 122 in 2011 and 90 last year.

    "We're definitely going to have to monitor him," Redmond said. "He and I have talked several times about letting game know how he is feeling. I feel like we are on the same page and have a good program for him."

    Reportedly placed on waivers.
    --------------------
    But not the kind that means we released him. You know.

    So the kind of waivers that most players get placed on at the beginning of August?

    Placido Polanco, whose $2.75 million salary already made him the highest-paid Marlin (not counting the $4 million paid Heath Bell to go away), just got a little wealthier. By playing in his 100th game on Sunday, Polanco qualified for a $125,000 performance bonus that was built into his contract.

    Imagine if you read a story where it said the Marlins weren't gonna give Polanco another AB all season simply to avoid paying him $125k.

    I wonder how that would go over.

    calm down, hugg

    I posted it because it's funny that Polanco is getting AB's when we have Cogs available.

    I'd be totally fine with them benching Polanco and playing young guys.
