Recent reports in the media have verified that the Marlins are currently looking to make changes on the field. This is no surprise, but what is surprising is that the Orioles have confirmed that they were in discussions over AJ Burnett. The possible deal was to have AJ Burnett, Juan Encarnacion and Eric Reed shipped to Baltimore for Jorge Julio, Larry Bigbie, and either Ryan Cabrera or Hayden Penn.
Another deal that seems to be brewing is the Yankees interest in Juan Encarnacion. Faced with needing a CFer, the Yanks may look to Encarnacion to fill that void and in exchange would give the Marlins Paul Quantrill. This would save the Marlins some money (about $2.39M) as they would likely get Quantrill for nothing.
