MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro reports that the Marlins have optioned Gaby Sanchez to Triple-A New Orleans.

The 28-year-old first baseman went 0-for-3 in Saturday afternoon’s loss to the Indians, dropping his already-hideous slash line to .197/.244/.295.

The Fish will hope that he can get his timing back against a lower level of competition at Triple-A.

Sanchez is a .263/.337/.427 career hitter in over 1,450 major-league plate appearances. He was named an All-Star in 2011 and finished the season with 19 home runs and 75 RBI.

Logan Morrison seems likely to move to first base while the Marlins wait for Sanchez to get himself right.

    I’m sorry to see Gaby struggling so mightily this season, although really his troubles began about midway through last season and had a lot to do with why the Feesh tanked as badly as they did. He’s a really nice fellow, very stand-up about his problems at the plate, never ducks the press or becomes abusive when questioned – like, um, a certain blowhard manager with whom he works in close proximity. This demotion is sure to be a blow to him, and I wish him all the best in getting himself turned around. This team isn’t going anywhere without him.
