There has been speculation that this week could be a soft deadline for the Miami Marlins to trade right-hander Ricky Nolasco. While that could prove to be the case, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that there is no deal currently on the table from anyone who is interested in Nolasco, a list which includes clubs such as the Los Angeles Dodgers, Baltimore Orioles, San Francisco Giants, Texas Rangers, Colorado Rockies and San Diego Padres, according to Heyman. While the Marlins might want to deal Nolasco sooner-than-later, a source told Heyman that the 30-year-old is “not a giveaway.” Miami will reportedly hold out until it receives what it considers to be its asking price for Nolasco. Injuries and ineffectiveness have nearly all contenders in the market for starting pitching upgrades as the July 31 trade deadline approaches. The Dodgers have been tabbed as the favorites to ultimately land Nolasco, but his market continues to develop. Over 17 starts, Nolasco has posted an ERA and WHIP of 3.93 and 1.244 with a strikeout-to-walk ratio of 3.32. He’s making $11.5 million this year, of which he’s owed roughly another $5 million for the remainder of the season. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
