Jose Reyes To Play Short, Hanley Ramirez To Play Third?

It was a year ago, just before the start of the winter meetings, that the Washington Nationals made a huge splash and signed Jayson Werth to a seven-year contract. This year, just before the start of the winter meetings, the Miami Marlins made a huge splash and signed Jose Reyes to a six-year contract. The Marlins have long seemed like something of an inevitable destination for Reyes, which sounds weird, but on Sunday it all became official.

Of course, the Marlins already had an athletic shortstop in Hanley Ramirez. To get Reyes would mean that the Marlins would have to move Ramirez, either to another position, or in a trade. This is where Jayson Stark comes in handy:

#Marlins people are saying it's still possible Hanley could move to CF. But source close to Hanley says he's already agreed to play 3B.

The Marlins might still trade Ramirez, but that seems unlikely. It would appear that Ramirez will simply slide to his right. The Marlins had holes at both third and center, but it looks like Ramirez will fill the former, while Emilio Bonifacio and Chris Coghlan fill the latter. Barring another move. Which, y'know, new Marlins. Who knows?
