Trade Possibilities

THE LIST

 

While the cost of dealing for Boston's Nomar Garciaparra might be prohibitive, a number of other offensive options have piqued the Marlins' interest as the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline approaches.

 

Among them are outfielders Frank Catalanotto (Toronto), Danny Bautista (Arizona) and Jeromy Burnitz (Colorado); utility man Rob Mackowiak (Pittsburgh); and catchers Gregg Zaun (Toronto), Brent Mayne (Arizona) and Dan Wilson (Seattle).

 

Catalanotto ($2.3 million this year) and Mayne ($800,000) are on the disabled list with minor injuries, although Mayne will soon start his minor league rehab assignment this week. Wilson ($3.5 million) won't be made available until recently acquired catcher Miguel Olivo (kidney stones) comes off the Mariners' DL.

 

The Marlins have told teams they are not interested in outfielders Randy Winn (Seattle), Preston Wilson (Colorado) and Matt Stairs (Kansas City). Arizona's Finley is another option, but he's making $7 million, can block any trade and is known to favor playing on the West Coast.

 

Montreal outfielder Brad Wilkerson ($375,000) is not available, despite several national reports to the contrary. Nor are the Expos interested in moving reliever Luis Ayala, another Marlin trade target.

 

The longer the Marlins wait before playing their hand, the better their odds of landing affordable help. Just eight teams are clearly in the selling mode, but that number could double by the end of the month.

Good possiblities on the list.

 

I just hope we can make to the end of the month, and still be in the buying mode.

Plus he is a #3 hitter...which is exactly what we need.

 

What would it take to get him? He is a FA after the season...so it would only be a rental situation.

Didn't we trade Bautista because he was mediocre at best?

Yeah, we traded him for Andy Fox.

 

How much is he?

 

Making 4 million this season.
