Marlins seeking starting pitching
MIAMI — Already, the Marlins have made significant upgrades with the free agent signings of Jose Reyes, Heath Bell and Mark Buehrle.
Speculation remains that Miami has interest in slugger Prince Fielder. That’s not the case.
The organization is focusing its attention on bringing in more starting pitching. They’d like to add another veteran, mostly likely through a trade.
Oakland’s Gio Gonzalez is high on the list. But the asking price also is high. So it’s a matter of how comfortable the club is parting with players already on their big league roster, along with prospects.
Lefty Joe Saunders is on the market, but he doesn’t appear to be a fit.
