After being involved in some trade rumors last week Jose Fernandez shied away from talking about them when approached by reporters last week at a charity event:

"I have heard something," Fernandez said. "I'm not paying attention to it at all. My No. 1 goal is to get ready. I went into the offseason healthy. A lot of work, a lot of things to do. I really don't have no time to look into that stuff. It's not important to me.

Fernandez also said that Scott Boras would involved in the meetings with the Marlins about his innings limit for this upcoming season.

Following an improved 2015 campaign, Adeiny Hechavarria is looking forward to getting back on the field.

The rumors were swirling around Jose Fernandez's current stance with the Marlins, could he be moved in the bear future?

Fox Sports Florida and the Miami Marlins made a mutual decision to let go of play-by-play broadcaster Tommy Hutton. A search for Hutton's replacement will begin soon.

Following a report that he was unhappy in Seattle, Robinson Cano contacted Mariners GM Jerry Dipoto and told him he felt the opposite.

Chris Davis is set to hit the open market and the Orioles will make it a high priority to try and re-sign him.

The Mariners signed Chris Iannetta to a one-year deal worth $4.25 million.

The Dodgers hired Dave Roberts to replace Don Mattingly as their manager.
