Several individuals have attempted to buy the Marlins over the last few years, but Owner Jeffrey Loria still does not plan on selling the club, according to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman:

Multiple attempts in recent years have been made to buy the Marlins, and sources say Venezuelan multi-billionaire Gustavo Cisneros is said to have made at least one of the attempts. Jeffrey Loria has shown no inclination to sell, however. "No interest in selling," club president David Samson texted back, succinctly affirming the widely-held belief .

Even though Jose Fernandez has consistently been mentioned in trade rumors, agent Scott Boras does not believe the Marlins will trade their ace this winter.

Before the Reds traded Aroldis Chapman to the Yankees, the Marlins reportedly expressed interest. Miami also considered using Chapman as a starter.

While the Marlins are entering 2016 with a new coaching staff, the roster has not changed much heading into next season.

Robert Andino, a former Marlins draft pick, was recently signed to a minor league deal with an invitation to Spring Training.

Adeiny Hechavarria is expected to take strides again in 2016.

Tyler Kolek has not developed very quickly and that might plague the Marlins in the future.

Around the League

The Dodgers signed Scott Kazmir to a $48 million deal that includes an opt-out clause after the first year.

Alex Gordon has not ruled out returning to Kansas City,.
