The Miami Marlins off-season shopping may not be done just yet. Vladimir Guerrero told Julio E. Castro C. at the Dominican paper El Caribe (link in Spanish) that the Marlins have shown interest in the right handed hitter in a bench role.
“The Marlins have shown interest in me, but to be on the bench or to pinch hit for the pitcher. Ozzie Guillen didn’t like this, since he said I’m not that class of player,” Guerrero told Castro. Guerrero shares this hesitancy, adding, “I don’t consider myself a bench player, in spite of my age.”
However, according to Nick Collias of MLB Trade Rumors, neither Guerrero nor manager Ozzie Guillen is entirely comfortable with what a move back to the National League would signify for the 37-year-old’s career.
Guerrero in my opinion would be someone the Marlins should give an invite to Spring Training. If he can still hit, Guerrero would be the perfect right handed hitter off of the bench.
What do you guys think?
According to Joe Frisaro, Marlins not seriously considering Guerrero.
