The Miami Marlins continue to clean house. It started around this time last year when the team traded third baseman Hanley Ramirez to the Los Angeles Dodgers for a slew of prospects and it is continuing through the Dodgers as the Marlins ridded of Ricky Nolasco last week.
It does not seem like the Marlins are even close to being finished with its share of wheeling and dealing as three more players could be traded within the next couple of weeks as the deadline for trades nears. Greg Dobbs, Chad Qualls and Ryan Webb are all players who could be dealt soon.
Dobbs could be a great bench player for some team. He was used a lot in his few years with the Marlins. In two and a half years, Dobbs has tallied more than 300 games and is batting .268/.309/.369 with 15 home runs and 106 RBI. Although he has tapered off this season, a change of scenery could be the resurgence that he needs.
Qualls and Webb have been staples in the Marlins bullpen this season. In 34 games, Qualls has a 3.27 ERA, 3.0 K/BB and 24 strikeouts. Qualls could add some depth to a contender this season.
Webb has pitched for Miami since 2011. His ERA was bloated last season but has calmed down a bit. A 3.20 ERA and a 1.33 K/BB has showed that. In 36 games, Webb has 24 strikeouts as well. However, he is working on a career-high walk total with 18 already issued this season with his highest being 20.
The Marlins have already slashed its team to shreds and dumping more role players could continue has July wears on.
