This morning we heard that the Marlins are making Hanley Ramirez available. Bob Nightengale reports that he’s in demand:

He’d represent an upgrade for the A’s, no doubt. At least if you don’t think Brandon Inge is gonna carry that team offensively. In Boston and Toronto he’d make more sense as a shortstop. In all cases, he’s a gamble: will the change of scenery make him what he once was? Or will he be a $31.5 million+ bust?
