According to a report by New York News Daily’s Andy Martino, the Miami Marlins have been aggressive in shopping their starting pitcher and highest paid player, Ricky Nolasco, before the July trade deadline.Nolasco is in the last year of a contract that has the Marlins paying him $11.5 million this season, wherein he will be a free-agent at the end of the the year.Nolasco has spent his entire seven year career with the Marlins and has posted a 3.68 ERA and 77/25 strikeout to walk in 100.1 innings of work this season, wherein Miami will most likely be looking to barter Nolasco to an interested team before a potential regression of skills.Both the Baltimore Orioles and New York Yankees may have some interest in picking up Nolasco as both AL East contenders desperately need help with their struggling rotations; however, according to Danny Knobler of CBS Sports, the San Francisco Giants have shown great interest in the Miami right hander.The Giants need a solid addition to a rotation that has been consistently inconsistent this season, in that they admire Nolasco’s pitching ability (highlighted by a plus slider that has been his “lights out” pitch this season and his ability to mix pitches well) and his past success at AT&T Park in San Francisco.In four career starts in San Francisco, Nolasco has garnered a victory in each of those starts and boasts a phenomenal 0.83 ERA.Whichever way the cookie crumbles come the trade deadline, the Marlins need to free up some salary space and bolster a roster that has underachieved this season, whereas Nolasco will be able to add depth and experience to a rotation that is in need of help for the summer stretch ahead.
