The Marlins, baseball's hottest team, are seeking a starter but don't at the moment seem focused on either of Boston's two big starters, Jon Lester or John Lackey.

Miami would prefer a young starter with contollable years, such as Arizona's Wade Miley or Oakland's Tommy Milone. The Diamondbacks have been reluctant to trade Miley, though.

They may also look at projects like Ross Detwiler or Felix Doubront.

The Marlins had won six in a row and nine of 10 games before Wednesday's series finale vs. the Nationals.
