Marlins not seeking out more trades, but will listen


ST. LOUIS -- First order of business for Marlins management was trading Ricky Nolasco. Now that the deal is done, what's next?

The Marlins remain open for business on the trade front, but they are not being proactive at this time. They completed a high-profile deal on Saturday night, moving Nolasco to the Dodgers for three pitching prospects.

Marlins president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest said conversations with clubs are continuing.

"We have a lot of good young players that people are interested in, but we're interested in them also," Beinfest said. "We kind of see now what we can become, and it is exciting. The phones will be open. We're by no means taking the rest of the month off. There could be more deals."

Beinfest didn't address any specific players. But teams have made inquires on relievers Steve Cishek, Mike Dunn, Chad Qualls and Ryan Webb.

Right fielder Giancarlo Stanton is not on the market.

It is unlikely Cishek or Dunn will be moved, especially Cishek, unless another club greatly overspends.
