Ricky Nolasco's agent, Matt Sosnick, has told Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com that his client wants to be traded.

"Ricky and I have spoken a lot since the end of the season," Sosnick said. "Just watching the way the offseason has transpired for the Marlins and the moves they've made, he and I agree that he would probably be better served playing somewhere else." Sosnick declined to say whether he has formally asked the Marlins to trade his client. Team president David Samson said last month that Nolasco wouldn't be dealt, but things may change if he believes the righty is truly unhappy. The Fish are also shopping Yunel Escobar.
