Marlins to consider trading Dan Uggla?

The Marlins will consider moving Dan Uggla this season, despite posting his fourth consecutive 25 homer season. Uggla is making 5.35 million dollars this season, and still has two more years of arbitration. Several teams have had interest in Uggla in the past, so finding a suitor would not be too difficult.

The Orioles, Twins, Dodgers, and Cardinals are all in the market for an infielder, particularly one with power. The Dodgers do not plan on getting into a bidding war to retain Orlando Hudson, but it is unclear if they would be willing to move more prospects, especially after the slew of trades they made this season. 

The Twins make sense for Uggla. The Twins lineup would look a lot more dangerous with Uggla in the middle of it. They already have four guys - Morneau, Mauer, Cuddyer, and Kubel - who have hit at least 20 home runs this season. Of those four players, Joe Mauer is the only one to not have more than one 20 homer season. Delmon Young could be part of the deal that would send Uggla to Minnesota, just in time for the new Target Field set to open in 2010.
