Report: Marlins Will Look To Trade Hanley Ramirez

Thursday December 8th, 2011

Miami Marlins shortstop Hanley Ramirez is expected to be traded, according to a tweet from ESPN’s Buster Olney.

“Source: Hanley Ramirez's rep asked the Marlins for a restructured deal. MIA upset with this, will now be looking to trade Hanley,” Onley tweeted.

It was reported earlier that Ramirez, who was previously considered the franchise player of the Marlins, was upset about having to move from shortstop to third base with the signing of fellow All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes. Miami reportedly inked a six-year, $106 million deal with Reyes despite knowing that their star shortstop was not open to a position change.
