The Marlins thought that Mike Rabelo could of at least shared time with Matt Treanor this season after they acquired him in the big trade over the winter with the Tigers but he has failed. Because of that he has been dispatched to AAA ball while the Marlins have recalled Paul Hoover to replace him on the roster. Rabelo played in 34 games for the Marlins this season and he was 22 for 109 (.202 avg, .550 OPS) with 9 runs scored, 3 homers and 10 RBIs. Paul Hoover has been around quite a while and he should be able to at least handle the job on defense. Hoover has played in 3 games for the Marlins this year and he is 3 for 10 (.300 avg) with 1 run scored. Maybe Rabelo will make it back at some point this season for the Marlins but not likely before September unless Hoover plays poorly or Matt Treanor gets injured. He has been a huge disappointment for the Marlins.
