Well, after the big money off-season the Miami Marlins may be looking to sell at the deadline. Trade rumors about the Marlins’ third baseman have resurfaced.

MLB Trade Rumors: Is Hanley Ramirez Up for Grabs? dlvr.it/1ltHmz

@nt_hanson long term Braves starting lineup needs either a LF or 3b… trade for Hanley?

The possible teams would be the Tigers, Dodgers and the Angels. This is nowhere near as close as a Kevin Youkilis deal BUT would be an interesting move especially for fantasy owners. As it stands right now, Hanley Ramirez has not played a single game at shortstop, therefore he stands to lose his SS eligibility for next season. IF he were to be traded and become an everyday shortstop once again that would only serve fantasy owners well for next season as he is much more valuable at SS than 3B.
This is perhaps a pipe dream for now BUT something to monitor for sure!
