The Marlins are "strongly considering moving in another direction at catcher" this offseason, reports MLB.com's Joe Frisaro. John Baker may be headed for elbow surgery, while Ronny Paulino is a non-tender candidate given his PED suspension. Who might the Marlins consider importing this winter?
Viable free agents for the Marlins include Rod Barajas, John Buck, Ramon Hernandez, Gerald Laird, Bengie Molina, A.J. Pierzynski, Yorvit Torrealba, Jason Varitek, and Gregg Zaun. If the Fish don't find their man within that group, Ryan Doumit, Mike Napoli, Russell Martin, and Chris Iannetta could be available via trade.
