Rays, A’s interested in Yunel Escobar, Nolasco asks to be traded, Stanton update.
- Updated: December 4, 2012
The Marlins are stilling trying to find any takers on Yunel Escobar, who was reportedly being shopped since he got here a couple of weeks ago via the blockbuster trade sending Reyes, Buehrle, and J.J. to the Blue Jays. It was reported by Ken Rosenthal(@Ken_Rosenthal on twitter) from FoxSports that the Tampa Rays and the Oakland Athletics were pursing Marlins shortstop Yunel Escobar, the Rays apparently want him to be their everyday shortstop.
Ricky Nolasco reportedly told the Marlins he wanted to be traded, his agent told espn.com. This makes me wonder how will it affect Stanton? Stanton and Nolasco are best friends that recently went touring Europe after the conclusion of the season. The Marlins might end up throwing Nolasco in a trade with Escobar but it would be best to keep him unless he becomes out of control and REALLY wants to leave.
Earlier today Marlins owner Larry Beinfest was ask if Giancarlo Stanton had requested a trade, He responded by saying “We’ll keep those conversations private”. This makes you wonder the Stanton did indeed request a trade but the Marlins will not acquiesce so easily unless they find a deal that can not be turned down. Even then if Stanton would be traded that could be the last straw for a fan base that is already riled up about the MAJOR salary dump the Marlins already had.
Juan Rodriguez beat writer of the marlins for the Sun Sentinel is now reporting the Marlins have not received a direct trade request from Nolasco or his agent.
