The Miami Marlins have dangled starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco to just about any team in need of pitching help and in return they’ve become the belle of the ball. Nolasco has been courted by a handful of teams and last night, according to CBS’ Jon Heyman, the New York Yankees, San Francisco Giants, Texas Rangers, Colorado Rockies and San Diego Padres all sent some of their premier scouts to watch the 30 year old arm pitch. However, according to Heyman, the Yankees were watching the Marlins and Atlanta Braves for hitters. Sure.

Per Heyman:

Tex SFG Col SD and NYY had scouts at nolasco’s game last nite, via @DannyKnoblerCBS. but yanks not on nolasco, seek hitters

Nolasco put on a show for the scouts in attendance, going seven strong innings, allowing two runs, strikout out seven in the process en route to the victory.

He currently holds a 3.85 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 112.1 innings.

The Marlins have said they plan to trade Nolasco well before the MLB trade deadline but given the interest, it’s possible they could wait for a deadline deal to snag the most value in a return assuming they create a bidding war.
