Three suitors for Nolasco 

July, 3, 2013
Ricky Nolasco is still scheduled to start Wednesday night for the Miami Marlins in Atlanta. But it’s increasingly possible he could be traded before he can make it to the mound.

According to two executives who spoke with the Marlins on Tuesday, three teams remain in heavy pursuit of Nolasco. Those executives told the indications they’ve gotten are that those three teams are the Rangers, Dodgers and Rockies. And the Marlins now appear to be narrowing their focus in an attempt to get a deal done quickly.

Miami continues to ask for multiple prospects in exchange for the 30-year-old right-hander. The approximately $5.7 million left on Nolasco’s contract is also an issue in the discussions, because the eventual price in players will depend on how much of that money Nolasco’s new team is willing to pick up.
