The Miami Marlins are trying hard to trade right-handed starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco.
The New York Daily News quoted a National League official who said the Marlins are "being very aggressive, calling everybody about their pitchers."
Another source told the Daily News that the Marlins also shopped Nolasco in February.
"They are desperate to move Nolasco," the source said.
Nolasco's name has been mostly mentioned in trade rumors with the San Francisco Giants, who have been battling injuries and ineffectiveness with their starting pitching this year. Nolasco is a California native.
In 100 1/3 innings pitched this year, Nolasco is 4-7 with a 3.68 ERA and has 77 strikeouts and 25 walks.
He is a free agent at the end of the year.
