According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, while the Marlins do not award no-trade clauses, they had assured both Jose Reyes and Mark Buehrle as free agents last offseason that they would not be moved, and that the team was committed to a long-term vision.

Buehrle was concerned going in due to the Marlins history of dumping high-priced veterans, but team president David Samson reassured him and his wife that he wouldn't be traded. While verbally assuring players they won't be traded isn't a binding agreement, it's still deplorable to turn around and sell off those players the next season. It's hard to envision any free agents choosing to sign in Miami in the near future.
