The Marlins were fielding offers for Marcell Ozuna in exchange for starting pitching. After locking up Wei-Yin Chen, though, Miami will probably hold onto their center fielder until at least the trade deadline.
The Fish recently signed Chris Johnson to provide bench depth, but a full-time platoon with Justin Bour at first base is an option that the team could also consider.
With Dee Gordon and Giancarlo Stanton, the Marlins could achieve something that has only happened six times in baseball history.
Stanton and Jose Fernandez are the Marlins' most dominant players; if Miami wants to succeed this year, they need the duo on the field together all season long.
Scott Boras was present at the Wei-Yin Chen press conference, and this may show an improvement in relations between the agent and the Fish. This will only benefit both parties further down the line.
