Marlins Showing Some Interest In Carroll

7:03pm: Gonzalez has filed a blog post on the topic with quotes and more.  As he notes, the Marlins will probably step up their efforts to sign Carroll if they're able to trade second baseman Dan Uggla.  Most clubs are looking at Carroll as a utilityman; might the lure of more playing time draw him to South Florida?

5:21pm: According to Alden Gonzalez of (via Twitter), the Marlins have some amount of interest in free-agent infielder Jamey Carroll.

Gonzalez spoke Wednesday with Carroll's agent, Jonathan Maurer, who said the Marlins are pursuing the 35-year-old infielder, but not as aggressively as some other teams.  According to Maurer, 10 other clubs have expressed interest in Carroll, who hit .276/.355/.340 in 2009 and played solid defense at three different spots on the Cleveland infield.

So far we've seen the Phillies, Nationals, Dodgers and A's linked to Carroll in some way this offseason.
