Jose Fernandez is set to make $2.8 million next season, but that figure can easily become $3 million based on the number of games he starts, according to Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan:

After signing Wei-Yin Chen, it is unlikely the Marlins trade Marcell Ozuna for a starting pitcher:

Chen's deal is the second largest for a free agent starter in Marlins history:

David Phelps and the Marlins agreed on a $2.5 million deal for 2016:

Chris Johnson could prove to be the ideal complement to Justin Bour at first base.

Dee Gordon agreed to a five-year, $50 million extension.

Chris Narveson will have a chance to win a spot in the Marlins' bullpen next season.

Should the Marlins consider a Bour/Johnson platoon?

The Marlins avoided arbitration with all of their arbitration eligible players.
