As the Marlins continue to creep towards .500, their trade plans seem to have become more concrete.

They will consider dealing Javier Vazquez, Leo Nunez and Randy Choate. They won't talk about Ricky Nolasco or Anibal Sanchez, or Josh Johnson.

"We were told 'no way' on Nolasco," said an official of one team that checked in with the Marlins in the last few days. "They want to build around Johnson, Sanchez and Nolasco moving into their new stadium."

Marlins people have suggested that if the team can get to .500 this week (they're three games under, as of Monday morning), they may not sell at all. It seems impossible that the Marlins could get back into the playoff race (they're 10 games behind the wild-card leading Braves), but they may still take a shot.

Vazquez has had a good run recently, with a 1.39 ERA over his last five starts. That includes interleague games against the Angels, A's and Rangers, but it's still hard to see any American League team taking a chance on him.

"I think he gets hives when he even flies over an AL city," one scout said.

Vazquez has a no-trade clause in his contract, and it's not clear how many teams he would approve a trade to. Vazquez wouldn't address the issue Monday.

Nunez and Choate could also be of interest to teams. Left-handed hitters are just 5-for-54 against Choate this year, with one walk, 23 strikeouts and with one double as the only extra-base hit. Nunez is 26-for-29 in save situations.
