The Miami Marlins are looking to trade starting pitcher Jacob Turner, reports Jon Morosi of Fox Sports.

According to the report, the Seattle Mariners and Arizona Diamondbacks could be possible destinations for the right-hander.

The Marlins have plenty of pitching depth, and could be looking to upgrade their infield.

Turner, 22, was the Detroit Tigers first-round pick in the 2009 MLB Draft. He was traded to Miami in 2012 for second baseman Omar Infante and pitcher Anibal Sanchez.

He allowed one run in four innings in his third start this spring on March 13.
