|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(11/13/13) According to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, the Marlins and Cubs are considering talks regarding a trade of some of their top prospects.
The pitching-heavy Marlins may be willing to part with some of their young hurlers, including major leaguers Jacob Turner, Henderson Alvarez and Nate Eovadi as well as prospects Andrew Heaney , Justin Nicolino , Adam Conley and Jose Urena and late-season callup Brian Flynn. In return, they would likely target one or more of the Cubs' top hitting prospects, including Kris Bryant , Javier Baez , Albert Almora and Jorge Soler .

(3/28/13) Marlins pitching prospect Justin Nicolino was excellent in a spring start Thursday against St. Louis, allowing a run on six hits over five innings. He struck out three.
Nicolino was one of the prospects brought to Miami in this winter's blockbuster with the Blue Jays. He ranks sixth on their top-prospects list according to Baseball America and is expected to begin the year at High-A.
|Nicolino not yet on fast track |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/4/13) MLB.com reports the Marlins are in no hurry to rush pitching prospect Justin Nicolino to the majors, which is why he isn't on the 40-man roster and wasn't invited to major-league camp. "There's always going to be hype about everyone, and more so for some guys," he said. "I want to come in here this season, and do what I do best -- continue to work hard. I'm not going to change anything. I'm not going to be anybody different. I'm going to try to go about my business the right way." Nicolino, who was acquired in the blockbuster trade with the Blue Jays this offseason, has a lively fastball, but it's his changeup that sets him apart. "Besides the fastball, the changeup is my favorite pitch," he said. "I have confidence to throw it early in the count, or late in the count. Sometimes I will even attack hitters with it. If I know they have a weakness, or they have a few holes in their swing, I'll attack it with my changeup. That's the thing that's helped me out so far, I'm not afraid to throw it."
