TEAMS: Miami Marlins
Considering the Miami Marlins are currently sitting in last place in the National League East, the team would appear poised to become sellers this summer. However, while they may make a few minor moves, the Marlins don’t anticipate completing any other major trades, according to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com. The Marlins have shown signs of improvement as the season has continued. Though the team currently sports an overall record of 35-58, Miami has gone 22-17 since May 31. Compare this to the 14-41 mark they accumulated in April and May and you can see they’ve come a long. For this reason, the Marlins are hoping to build on this momentum for the second-half of the season. Veterans such as Giancarlo Stanton, Logan Morrison, Steve Cishek and Mike Dunn have all been mentioned in rumors, but Frisaro notes that Miami considers all four players as building blocks for the future. He adds that we shouldn’t expect any of them to be traded. Frisaro says the Marlins have already made their major move of the trade season, dealing right-hander Ricky Nolasco to the Los Angeles Dodgers for three pitching prospects. Miami was confident in its young group of starters poised to replace Nolasco, who was set to become a free agent at the end of the season. There is no obvious replacement for the other four players coveted by contenders, and all of them are under contract beyond 2013. While Frisaro doesn’t expect the Marlins to trade major pieces, he does note that Miami could make minor moves by parting with veterans such as Ryan Webb, Chad Qualls, Placido Polanco, Justin Ruggiano and Greg Dobbs.
