That I have no idea. The logic of being able to pick a player-even a B-/C+ prospect- from the Florida system is sound, especially since the Marlins have more pitching talent in their system than any other team in major league baseball. The more I think about this, the more I think that maybe Wayne Krivsky planned some portion of this all along.
Ross was redundant from Day One with Denorfia around (a player with similar skills and pedigree, probably a tad bit better overall), so once it became clear that Quinton McCracken wasn't getting deleted like he should have been, it started to look like Krivsky only wanted Ross as some sort of trading chit to begin with.
