Mark Buehrle Wants No-Trade Clause From Marlins

The Miami Marlins have been involved with several high profile free agents this offseason, including left-handed starting pitcher Mark Buehrle. There appears to be mutual interest, but Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Marlins' reluctance to give Buehrle a no-trade clause is the biggest obstacle preventing a deal. Rosenthal explains one reason why Buehrle, as well as Albert Pujols, another Miami target, would be interested in no-trade clauses:

Pujols and Buehrle had full no-trade protection with their prior clubs due to their 10-5 rights — 10 years of major-league service, five with the same team — so it’s reasonable for them to attempt to preserve no-trade protection with new clubs.

Buehrle is interested in a move to the National League, and if he were to end up in Miami, he would be reunited with manager Ozzie Guillen.
