Marlins | Placido Polanco ready for everyday role

Miami Marlins 3B Placido Polanco (back) said Wednesday, Jan. 9, that he is physically prepared for a full season as the team's third baseman. He also said his back is healthy. "I still had problems (in 2012), a lot of scar tissue and that area was weak. I was compensating a lot with my back and other parts of my body. Thank God, all that is in the past and I feel very healthy," Polanco said.

Fantasy Tip: The team did not talk to Polanco about playing anywhere else but third base, but he has played plenty of second base before. If 2B Donovan Solano struggles, and 3B Kevin Kouzmanoff takes off, Polanco could potentially shift spots. Polanco is worth a look in all NL-only leagues and some deeper mixed formats in the later rounds on draft day.
