« Lineups -- Marlins/Nationals (Sunday) | Main | Triple A team moving to New Orleans »

The Mudcats are here, but not in the lineup

The Mudcats arrived Tuesday. Center fielder Cameron Maybin, first baseman Gaby Sanchez and pitchers Ryan Tucker and Jesus Delgado – all from the Double A Carolina Mudcats -- were added to the September roster. None of them were in the starting lineup.

Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez said he would use the new players when he could, but insisted the Marlins were still in the race for the NL East title, and he would manage the team that way.

“We’re playing to win this thing,’’ said Gonzalez, whose Marlins began Tuesday six games behind the Mets in the NL East race and 5 ½ in back of wild card leaders Milwaukee and Philadelphia.

“We will use them where we see it can help us, pinch-run, pinch-hit,’’ he said. “The best case scenario is we win it, and we give them a start here or there. They’re here. They can help us win ball games. Let’s go.’’
