Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post spoke with Marlins team president David Samson on Wednesday. Samson implied that Dan Uggla probably won’t be traded this offseason.
"Everyone is on the trading block, but some players are more likely than others to get traded and I would certainly put (Uggla) in the less-likely (category) as we speak today," Samson said.
Uggla will recieve either $5.35 million or $4.4 million when an arbitrator decides his fate next month. "Dan Uggla is a very important part of our team. He is being compensated as one of the top first-time eligible position players in history," Samson added.
