What kind of infield will Marlins president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest, left, be able to provide first-year manager Mike Redmond?

When the 2013 season begins next spring, Miami Marlins infielders should wear the following name tag: Hi, my name is ________________________.

The Marlins waved goodbye to All-Star shortstop-turned-third baseman Hanley Ramirez, second baseman Omar Infante and first baseman Gaby Sanchez in three separate deals at last season's July trade deadline.

Then last month, the Marlins said adiós to shortstop Jose Reyes and catcher John Buck in the 12-player blockbuster fire sale with the Toronto Blue Jays.

What those trades signified is no matter what the Marlins do from now until Opening Day, there will be new faces at every infield position.

Although the situation is fluid, the players the club has chosen aren't a bunch of faceless nobodies.

You might recognize some of the infielders because of a position switch, others who came up through the Marlins' (or another franchise's) farm system, as well as a couple of known quantities trying to latch on for one more shot at glory or to re-establish their value.
