Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald hears that the Marlins "are resigned to losing" Jose Fernandez eventually.
Jackson says that Fernandez's camp believes the pitcher "could make $30 million annually as a free agent after 2018." It's a very realistic expectation provided that Fernandez stays healthy and continues his current career arc, as he won't turn 24 until after the 2016 All-Star break. The Marlins have entertained trade offers for the hurler this winter, although they never appeared remotely close to a deal and Jackson says the club is "no longer getting trade calls" for Fernandez. However, it's a virtual certainty that they'll eventually deal him before he reaches free agency, as they don't appear anxious to give him a Giancarlo Stanton-esque contract. Jan 26 - 10:01 PM

Marlins and RHP Jose Fernandez avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.8 million contract.

He can earn an additional $200,000 based on the number of games he starts. Fernandez was limited to just 11 starts last season as he worked his way back from Tommy John surgery and will be under an innings cap in 2016.

In an interview with MLB Network Radio, Scott Boras indicated that he doesn't believe the Marlins will trade Jose Fernandez this offseason.

Fernandez has been linked as a possible Dodgers trade target in multiple December reports. The Giants and Diamondbacks have also surfaced as rumored landing spots for the 23-year-old right-hander. While there's been plenty of talk about Fernandez shipping out, nothing's progressed beyond the discussion stage to this point and the hot stove here should be considered lukewarm at best barring a sudden turnaround.

Jon Morosi of FOX Sports says the Dodgers and Marlins "remain in discussions" about a Jose Fernandez trade.

But there's nothing close to actually happening, adds Morosi. Miami's asking price on Fernandez is astronomical, as it should be, and there is really no need for the club to begin lowering its expectations with the 23-year-old ace locked in through 2018. If any team has the prospect depth to pull off a Fernandez trade it's the Dodgers, but there is not much fire behind the smoke at this point.

Joe Frisaro of reports that "all is quiet" in regards to a possible trade involving Jose Fernandez.

There was all sorts of chatter at the Winter Meetings last week, but the Marlins have a sky-high asking price and nobody has been willing to pay it thus far. Things could still change in the days and weeks to come, but talks have cooled down for now.
Tue, Dec 15, 2015 09:54:00 AM's Joe Frisaro hears that the Dodgers will have to part with Corey Seager, Julio Urias, Joc Pederson and two others if they want to land Jose Fernandez.

Given what the Diamondbacks had to surrender for Shelby Miller, it's hard to blame the Marlins for asking for the moon. However, unless the demands change or perhaps a third team is brought in as FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal indicated might be a possibility, the Dodgers and Marlins aren't going to make a deal. Fernandez remains likely to stay put, but the offseason is still young.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Dodgers have discussed involving a third team in order to satisfy the Marlins' trade demands for Jose Fernandez.

Leave it up to Dodgers president Andrew Friedman to get creative as he tries to pull off a blockbuster. The Marlins have said that they're not shopping Fernandez, but there's been way too much smoke to dismiss the possibility of them trading their ace. Julio Urias has been rumored to be one of the potential pieces that would go to the Marlins.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Dodgers, Giants, and Diamondbacks have all been talking to the Marlins about a possible trade for Jose Fernandez.

The Diamondbacks consider themselves "out," as the Marlins reportedly asked them for two of their top major league players in addition to multiple prospects. The Dodgers aren't willing to part with Corey Seager, but Heyman hears that prospect left-hander Julio Urias could be had as part of a large package of players. The Marlins have said Fernandez isn't available and their asking price could ultimately be too high for anyone to match it, but the chatter continues at the Winter Meetings in Nashville.

Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Astros aren't the "mystery team" in trade talks with the Marlins for Jose Fernandez.

ESPN's Jayson Stark reported a brief while ago that other teams believe the Astros are making a strong push to acquire Fernandez. They would seem to be a good match for what the Marlins would require, but there's nothing to it at this time. The mystery team remains a mystery for now.
Tue, Dec 8, 2015 12:11:00 PM

ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that a mystery team is making a "very strong" push to acquire Jose Fernandez from the Marlins.

Oh yes, the ever-infamous mystery team. While it's not confirmed, other teams believe that the Astros are the one making the push. The Marlins keep saying that Fernandez isn't available, but Stark heard from a source Tuesday that it's no longer unlikely that he'll be traded. However, they won't deal him without a monster return. The Astros have plenty of young, club-controlled players, so it's an intriguing fit. The Dodgers, Diamondbacks, and Yankees all reportedly have interest.
Tue, Dec 8, 2015 11:25:00 AM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Diamondbacks are no longer discussing a potential Jose Fernandez trade with the Marlins.

Heyman says the Marlins asked for two of the D'Backs best players, as well as top prospects. It's pretty clear that Miami is being unrealistic with their asking price at this point, but the fact that they're discussing trading Fernandez at all is probably the bigger story. A deal is likely still a long shot, but the door isn't shut.
Mon, Dec 7, 2015 11:27:00 PM

ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that the Marlins "think they're making progress with an unspecified team" on a Jose Fernandez trade, but "a deal still appears unlikely."

President Michael Hill said earlier Monday of Fernandez that the club hasn't "made him available" but "it doesn't stop the phone calls from happening." While it's surely true that the Marlins aren't anxious to trade their ace, it doesn't sound like they're quickly turning teams away, either. The Yankees, Dodgers and Diamondbacks are among the teams known to have inquired on the righty.
Mon, Dec 7, 2015 09:17:00 PM

A source told ESPN's Buster Olney Monday evening that he thinks the percentage chance of the Marlins trading Jose Fernandez is "into the 40s."

That same source told Olney Monday morning that the odds of a deal were "1 percent." CBS Sports' Jon Heyman hears that the Marlins are telling teams they want 5-6 "great young players" in exchange for Fernandez. It would truly take a club overwhelming Miami with an offer in order to make something happen, but it sounds like it can't be completely ruled out. For what it's worth, president of baseball operations Michael Hill said Monday evening that Fernandez is "not available." The Yankees, Dodgers and Diamondbacks are three clubs known to have inquired on the righty.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman hears that the Marlins are telling teams they want 5-6 "great young players" in exchange for Jose Fernandez.

Heyman adds that many of the players would need to be major league-ready, as well. Simply put, Miami isn't going to be trading Fernandez, as there's no incentive for them to at this point with him under team control for three more years. The Yankees, Diamondbacks and Dodgers are three clubs known to have at least inquired on Fernandez.
Mon, Dec 7, 2015 04:58:00 PM

A source told ESPN's Jayson Stark that the Yankees have been in touch with the Marlins about Jose Fernandez.

Add them to a list that also includes the Dodgers and Diamondbacks. Miami's asking price for Fernandez is sky-high and probably won't drop at all as the offseason marches on. The 23-year-old right-hander holds a brilliant 2.40 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and 336/85 K/BB ratio in 289 career major league innings and is under contractual control for three more seasons.
