Rosenthal’s Latest: Wilson, Marlins, Acta

Ken Rosenthal of has a few evening tidbits…

  • The Royals are reportedly "kicking around the idea of adding a shortstop."  Rosenthal believes the Pirates' Jack Wilson is the best fit, "but only if the Red Sox don't grab [him] first."
  • The Marlins "figure to trade [Dan] Uggla and first baseman Jorge Cantu if they fall out of contention," but, as Rosenthal notes, that hasn't happened yet. 
  • Nationals manager Manny Acta might hang on to his job for a while longer because his "players have not quit on him, nor are they sniping at him."  Sure, but a .265 winning percentage won't sit well with upper management all season.
