It appears that the Marlins may be preparing to promote prospect 1B/3B Gaby Sanchez (h/t Rotoworld). The team has instructed their Triple-A coaching staff to start Sanchez strictly at third base for the next 10 games. With Emilio Bonifacio struggling (how was he a better choice than Dallas McPherson, again?), it makes sense that the Fish are preparing for Sanchez to take his starting spot.
If you're in a deep 12-team mixed league or deeper, Sanchez should be stashed if he hasn't already been. Preseason projections for Sanchez were varied. His batting average projections ranged from .240 to .300, home runs from 9 to 12, and stolen bases from 5 to 12 (scaled to 325 at-bats, close to what he'll get if he starts the rest of the way). Those are solid numbers, especially for NL-only leaguers. Where he'll bat in the order is yet to be seen, although the #2 spot would be open for someone to take if Bonifacio is sent to the bench. Otherwise he'd probably have to bat in the bottom half of the order. The Sun Sentinel proposed this lineup:
