Buzz: Marlins might reel in Heath Bell

Jon Heyman at says the Marlins are in serious talks with the San Diego Padres about a trade for closer Heath Bell.

According to Heyman, the Padres are seeking young pitchers Andrew Miller or Sean West in return.

Bell is enjoying a sensational year as a first-time closer with San Diego, compiling 25 saves with a 2.01 ERA. That being said, he’s one of the few chips the Padres have that will bring back a decent return.

The Marlins are on a roll, winning seven of eight to climb withing two games of the Wild Card lead, and getting Bell will definitely improve their fortunes.
