The latest on the Marlins, who have already shipped Dan Haren to the Cubs…
- Jon Heyman of CBS Sports says the Marlins are looking for controllable young pitching, with names such as Tyson Ross of the Padres, Carlos Carrasco of the Indians, and Nate Karns of the Rays in play.
- A number of teams are calling on recently-demoted outfielder Marcell Ozuna, tweets Frisaro. The Marlins have no urgency to move the 24-year-old, who hit 23 home runs last year.
- The Marlins are shopping for starting pitching today, tweets MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro, in what he expects to be a busy day for the club. Frisaro notes that Dan Haren is drawing interest from several teams. Also, reliever Carter Capps was linked to the Yankees earlier.
- Earlier this week, the Marlins sent impending free agent Mat Latos to the Dodgers in a 13-player deal, but the move seemed mostly about salary relief for Miami. The assumption is the Fish are seeking young, controllable starting pitching, since both Latos and Haren will be eligible for free agency after the season.
