Marlins Notes: Infante, Vazquez, Hensley

The last-place Marlins won't taste the playoffs in 2012, but they're moving into a new ballpark next year and could spend big this offseason, so things might be different in Miami a year from now. Here's the latest on the Marlins…

  • Omar Infante told Christina De Nicola of MLB.com that he and the Marlins are going to postpone all contract talks until the season ends next week. The sides have discussed a multiyear deal this month.
  • Javier Vazquez has given every indication that this will be his final season, though he hasn't officially said he's going to retire, according to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald. The Marlins haven't discussed next season with Vazquez, who has had a resurgent second half, as I explained last week.
  • Clay Hensley, a non-tender candidate this offseason, told Spencer that he would love to return to Miami in 2012. The right-hander earned $1.4MM in 2011 and will be arbitration eligible for the second time this offseason. He has pitched well recently, though he had two stints on the disabled list and struggled as a starter.

Cant believe people continue to underestimate the Marlins year after year. They are better than what their record shows.

Exactly man the Marlins have the ability to do some amazing things. When you have a team with guys like Stanton, Ramirez, G. Sanchez and Lomo with the possibility of getting A.Ramirez of the Cubs thats one hell of a team.

With a healthy Hanley and JJ and an additional bat that they will hopefully add in the offseason, you can’t count them out of a race. ¬†Anything can happen.

The more colors the better for me. If I had a team they would be runnin out there in rainbow pants…

As bad as it might be its still light years better than the awfulness they’ve had since their inaugural season.

Would much prefer to see them 1st of all extend Anibel Sanchez than rush into ill thought out FA signings, especially the likes of Aramis Ramirez whose name has been tossed around (here at least) a lot lately.

Bonifacio also, if somebody could teach him to field *1* position at little league level.

Boni excels at 2nd base. But since he’s been here, it’s tough getting starts there with Uggla mashing and Infante playing GG defense.

Uhhh…. Uggla is on the Braves?
