Miami is not known for giving no-trade clauses but the club is giving one to a veteran starter. Edwin Jackson's one-year deal includes a full no-trade clause, according to MLB Network's Jon Heyman:

While the Rangers were thought to be open to including Chi Chi Gonzalez in a deal for Marcell Ozuna, that might not be the case:

The Marlins have made several changes to their minor league staffs.
As the organization moves forward, a number of changes have been made in the player development department for 2016. On Friday, the Marlins announced their new Minor League staffs.
Miami is among the clubs interested in Cuban free agent Yaisel Sierra:
Free agent Wei-Yin Chen is also on the Marlins' radar, though getting a deal done might be challenging since he is a Scott Boras client.
Gary Sheffield's Hall of Fame support dropped while Luis Castillo and Mike Lowell did not receive any votes in their first season of eligibility.
Cliff Lee is available and could prove to be a valuable addition to the Marlins' pitching staff.
Would the Marlins be improving by moving Marcell Ozuna?
