Nate Robertson Is Out; Brett Hayes to the DL


    No major surprise here. Left-hander Nate Robertson was designated for assignment on Wednesday following a rough outing the night before in which he gave up eight runs -- six in one inning -- in a loss to the Rockies. The Marlins are calling up reliever Jorge Sosa for now but will have to find a starter to replace Robertson in the rotation -- most likely Chris Volstad -- for Sunday's game against the Braves.

    Robertson made 19 starts for the Marlins and went 6-8 with a 5.47 ERA -- the highest ERA in the N.L. among the 47 pitchers with at least 100 innings -- after the Marlins obtained him from Detroit before the season for minor-league reliever Jay Voss. The Tigers picked up all but $400,000 of the pitcher's $10 million salary.

   In addition, the Marlins placed back-up catcher Brett Hayes on the 15-day disabled list with a left wrist injury and promoted catcher Brad Davis from Triple A New Orleans to take his place.

just another mess in a long line of them that the Detroit Tiger's have to pay for......sigh

Juan Varona

Marlins need to stay away from making deals with the Tigers and our former GM.

John

He has sucked from Day 1.What a waste.At least Volstad has a future.

Fair Hooker

Another brilliant acquisition by the genius of the Marlin front office. The same people that brought you Andrew Miller, Cameron Maybin in exchange for Hall of Famer Miguel Cabrera

Nate Robertson was a nothing from day 1 and just continued to be a nothing, burned out, cheap $$$$

Herman Bernberg

I have been wondering when his day would come because he has sucked from Day 1. Thank goodness is all I can say.

Luis Valdés MD

Another great transaction from the Marlin's brain trust and the cheapest ownership organization in MLB

You allowed the real GM of the team leave when Domb went to Detroit, now you are paying the price. He has PLAYED you for day one. Just one question, WHEN WILL YOU LEAVE? REAL SOON we all HOPE.
Lets see what you do this year, if you cannt get Oswalt or Harren, SP and Dotel or Quall Relievers,
then dont get any cheap ones that you usually try to get. Think now and long term.
Starting Pitchers:
JJ
Oswalt/Harren
Ricky
Sanchez
Sanabria/Volstadt/etc....


Go Fish

Really like Sanabria and other allegedly undersized guys that know how to throw strikes.

I know the trend is to sign these giant 6'5"+ pitchers that can throw 95+ and while you get an occasional JJ, many end up with mechanical and injury problems that they can't overcome.

Give me a Maddux clone any day and get Sanabria out there every 5th day.
