Marlins Likely To Keep Uggla

There are indications that the Marlins are not leaning toward trading Dan Uggla, according to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro.  Florida may even sign the second baseman for 2011, his final season of arbitration.  The club has yet to determine if they will seek a long-term contract in the offseason, however.

The Rockies have been interested in Uggla for quite some time and their interest has been ramped up since Troy Tulowitzki broke his wrist in mid-June.  While it seems like the Fish will hang on to their two-time All-Star, Frisaro notes that the club has a policy of listening to possible offers on just about anyone on their team.

As we've heard in recent weeks, there are other members of the Marlins who are trade candidates.  Cody Ross could change uniforms before the deadline and the Braves seem to be one of the most interested clubs out there.  Third baseman Jorge Cantu could be moved as he may be too rich for the Marlins' blood when he hits free agency this winter.  Even veteran Wes Helms has heard his name in trade talks as the Yankees appear to be interested.
