Nolasco still a Marlin and starting Wednesday

Ricky Nolasco was still a Miami Marlin as of Wednesday evening and scheduled to make his 18th start of the season.

Logan Morrison was held out of the lineup following his rough run-in with a charging Kris Medlen in the third inning of Tuesday night's game.

Morrison was turned around in mid-air as he collided with Medlen while reaching for a throw from Placido Polanco that was wide a couple of feet down the first-base line. Morrison landed hard on his right hip and elbow but remained in the game after being attended to for a few minutes by the Marlins training staff.

The Marlins have gone 13-8 since June 9 when Morrison came off the disabled list.

"[Morrison] landed pretty hard on his back, and his back has been bothering him the past week to 10 days," Redmond said. "We thought to get him out of there and give him a day [off], especially against a lefty, and hopefully he’ll be feeling better [Thursday]."

The Marlins reinstated catcher Miguel Olivo from the restricted list and designated him for assignment. The Marlins have 10 days to either work out a trade for Olivo or release him outright.

So now the question is who gets traded first Nolasco or Olivo? My money is on Nolasco. Not many teams will be interested in soon to be 35 year old catcher who goes AWOL when unhappy.

Clark did he marlins trade any of their international bonus pool money ,and did they sign anybody and who

Please don't tell me the Marlins were given bonus pool money and then just allowed to pocket it. Because if that was the situation I can guarantee the status of the money.
