Tim Healey of The Sun Sentinel said the Marlins aren't dying to trade Straily, but they will if they are blown away by an offer. The Marlins acquired Straily in a trade with the Cincinnati Reds this past offseason.
In order to get Straily, the Marlins had to part with top pitching prospect Luis Castillo. This season, Straily is 7-6 with a 3.84 ERA in 117.1 innings pitched. He has three years of team control left beyond this season.
He allowed six runs and ten hits in 4.0 innings pitched. He also gave up three home runs against Texas. Straily is scheduled to start on Sunday against his former team, the Reds.
The Marlins are currently 46-53 and are 14 games back of first place in the NL East. Straily isn't the only pitcher the Marlins would consider trading.
According to MLB.com's Mark Feinsand, AJ Ramos could be on the move soon before Monday’s trade deadline.

With Ramos and Straily on the market, it looks like the Marlins could be leaning towards a larger sale than was first anticipated at this year’s deadline.
