Miami Marlins Trade Rumors: Marlins don't want to trade major league talent

The Miami Marlins have been quiet to this point, and with an hour before the trade deadline, Miami has made it clear they have no desire to trade major league talent. The Marlins are still after a starter and second baseman.

It started with just a few names, but with just over an hour before the deadline, the Marlins have made it clear they have no desire to trade a player on the active 25-man roster.

In most of the day's bigger moves, major league players have accompanied prospects. Previously noting Giancarlo Stanton, Casey McGehee, and Christian Yelich-type players are off limits, the Marlins can't find a deal to their liking, or at least to this point. A lot of that may also come from the desire to hold onto prospects such as Andrew Heaney moving forward.

The Marlins are still looking to add a starter, with Tommy Milone, Jon Lester, and John Lackey having been traded. Ian Kennedy and Wade Miley are among those still available.

David Price is reportedly likely to be moved, and the Marlins have had interest in both Price and Ben Zobrist.
