Dee Gordon has added another trophy to his collection after being awarded the Wilson Defensive Player of the Year honor for second base.

The Marlins are going to take their time with the free agent market to ensure that they not only sign the most talented starting pitcher(s), but sign the right personalities too.

Miami will not move Marcell Ozuna unless a team offers big league talent in return. Who are the potential trade partners right now?

The Fish failed to lock up Adeiny Hechavarria to an extension last winter, and after an increase in production from the shortstop in 2015, he's now rumored to be looking for a $100 million contract.

The team has come to blows with super-agent Scott Boras again, and it's going to seriously hinder any contract negotiations with Jose Fernandez.

Around the League

The Red Sox could be lining up to make waves by snatching Aroldis Chapman away from the Reds.

Another elite reliever, Mark Melanconcould also be on the trade block.

The death of former Braves pitcher Tommy Hanson earlier this week was possibly due to an overdose.

The New York Yankees have started dealing early as they have received outfielder Aaron Hicks from Minnesota.
