Marlins Could Trade Starting Pitcher

When it comes to hot trading commodities, the Marlins have what other teams desire most: young starting pitching. And odds are the Marlins will deal one or more of their young hurlers in order to acquire a young hitter of equal talent.

“That’s the only scenario that makes sense,” Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill said Wednesday at the general managers meetings. “Our close-to-major-league-ready pitching, our young major-league starting pitching, is attractive. There’s been interest in that, and for good reason.”
