The Miami Marlins have recently emerged as sellers in this year's MLB trade deadline, with Ryan Webb having surfaced as a favourite to be involved in a move away from the team.

The Fish are not looking to send all their best players away; they will be delving into the market themselves to see who is available for trade, as they aim to improve on their poor league form over the past few seasons.

Webb is one of four relievers the Marlins would be willing to trade and is favourite to be heading for the exit door.

The player is currently entering his second year of arbitration and is expected to make around $1.2m.

The Marlins would rather cut their losses and see if they can secure a better return from a trade transfer.

Ricky Nolasco is also rumoured to be involved in a trade before Wednesday's start, although the Marlins are looking for what they deem as a future talent while also providing full salary relief for Nolasco.

There is no doubt between Nolacso and the Marlins that his time is up. The Fish may wait for the right deal to come along, but I wouldn't count on them waiting beyond the July 31 trade deadline this season.
