Marlins Considering Helms, Cantu

MLB.com's Jim Molony reports that the Marlins are considering Wes Helms and Jorge Cantu as candidates for their now-vacant third base job.

Helms had a career year in 2006 for the Marlins, hitting .329/.390/.575 while seeing a disproportionate amount of southpaws.  The Phils then wishcasted him as a starter and gave him two years and $5.45MM.  Helms has $2.15MM left on his contract plus a $750K buyout.

Cantu was recently cut by the Reds; his claim to fame is driving in 117 runs for the 2005 Devil Rays.  He turns 26 in January; perhaps his career can be revived in Florida.
