Justin Nicolino does not impress in first start
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Marlins pitching prospect Justin Nicolino probably isn't pitching for a rotation spot in spring training, and he didn't make a good first impression Thursday if he was. Nicolino failed to get out of the second inning in an exhibition start against Florida International University in his spring debut.

Nicolino, a non-roster invitee to spring training, was tagged for five runs in 1 2/3 innings. He gave up two runs in the first and was chased in the second after recording two outs and giving up three runs. He also surrendered seven hits in the game.

Nicolino is one of the team's better prospects, but he is not on the verge of making the jump to the majors just yet. He finished the 2013 season with a 3.11 ERA between Class A and Double-A.

by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

According to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, the Marlins and Cubs are considering talks regarding a trade of some of their top prospects.

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 .
