Marlins, Dodgers in trade talks involving Jose Fernandez

In a Jose Fernandez deal, the Marlins are asking for a lot in return.

Miami went into the Winter Meetings not shopping Jose Fernandez, however the organization appears to be at least listening to offers. The Dodgers have been linked to Fernandez, but the Marlins would request Julio Urias and Corey Seager in any deal, according to Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan.

The Marlins have consistently said they do not plan on trading Fernandez, so the high asking price is justified. Urias is one of the Dodgers' better pitching prospects and Seager has had a notable amount of offensive success while playing shortstop in Los Angeles.

If the Marlins were to acquire Seager, they might have him play third base since Adeiny Hechavarria has played well at shortstop.

Los Angeles is likely not the only team in on Fernandez, but it will almost certainly take a ton for the Marlins to move him. If one team is willing to drastically overpay, Fernandez could be moved before the end of the weekend.

Even if Fernandez is not involved, the Marlins and Dodgers could make a deal involving starting pitchers.
