Marlins check out 3B options

Among the potential candidates listed by ESPN's Jayson Stark to fill-in for the Marlins are Miguel Tejada, Placido Polanco and Brandon Inge.

The Miami Marlins could be in the market for a new third baseman as they are unsatisfied with the current talent at the position and have been kicking the tires on some veteran players, according to Jayson Stark of ESPN.

Among the potential candidates listed by Stark to fill in for the Marlins are Miguel Tejada, Placido Polanco and Brandon Inge. Of the three possible replacements, Inge is the youngest of the three at 35-years-old and Tejada is the oldest at 38.

Tejada didn't play for a major league team in 2012, but has played in 2,118 games during his 15-year career, including six-consecutive seasons when he didn't miss a single game. He was the winner of the American League's MVP award in 2002 for his performance with the Oakland A's.

Inge played in 74 games for the A's in 2012 and nine with the Detroit Tigers, but had just a .218 batting average. Polanco played in 90 games for the Philadelphia Phillies, but had his worst batting average since his rookie season, hitting at a .257 clip.
