Miami is expected to pursue starting pitching this winter, but big names such as David Price and Zack Greinke might not be realistic. The Marlins will not attempt to sign any big name starters, according to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro.

Miami has been competitive when it comes to certain free agents in the past, but it is likely the organization pursues second-tier level free agents. Yovani Gallardo could be an option for the Marlins, who are likely open to adding depth behind Jose Fernandez and Tom Koehler in the starting rotation.

Although Price might not have been considered, the Marlins could have made a run at Greinke. While he will likely receive an extensive contract, Greinke might have welcomed the opportunity to play for Don Mattingly, who the Marlins officially introduced Monday.

The Marlins will likely pursue starting pitching this winter, but big names are now unrealistic.
