Marlins to place Casey Kotchman on DL; first base situation dire
Marlins first baseman Casey Kotchman has a strained left hamstring and will be placed on the disabled list Friday, manager Mike Redmond told reporters Thursday.
How bad is this?
Well, Kotchman was only playing because Logan Morrison is on the 60-day disabled list. But what's left is pretty laughable.
Dobbs is a career utility man who is a below-average hitter. He's only spent 369 of his career 3,108 defensive innings at first base. But he's easily the best option.
Olivo is the backup catcher and has only appeared in five games (nine total innings) at first in his 12-season big-league career, and Valaika has never seen time in the majors or minors at first.
