UPDATE — Miami is interested in Atlanta’s Hunter Cervenka, according to ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick.
The Marlins are seeking left-handed relief help in advance of the non-waiver trade deadline, according to Joel Sherman of The New York Post.
MLB Network’s Jon Morosi reports the Marlins are open to adding a starter in advance of the deadline.
Miami doesn’t have much depth, although now that the club has Luis Castillo back, they could dangle him in a trade involving a lefty reliever.
Since the Marlins only have one left-handed option in Mike Dunn, the club could seeking a second. The Marlins haven’t routinely been interested in seeking left-handed specialists, though.
Miami has one of the better bullpen’s in the National League, and as a result, might not overpay for another relief option.
While the Marlins might not be interested in another reliever, another starter remains a possibility now that Rea is headed back to San Diego.
Miami could consider Ivan Nova and Michael Pineda, with the Yankees seemingly selling before the deadline.
With the deadline in about 90 minutes, the Marlins could be pressed to make another deal.
