Marlins legends Luis Castillo and Mike Lowell failed to earn any votes on their first year on the Hall of Fame ballot, while Gary Sheffield saw his votes drop slightly from a year ago.

Now that Alex Gordon has re-signed with the Kansas City Royals, teams have started to call Miami about Marcell Ozuna, but the Marlins are reportedly asking a lot in return.

Ozuna didn't have a great year last year, and even though he could be a bounce-back candidate for 2016, center field could be an area for improvement for the Fish.

It has been reported that the Marlins have some interest in former Phillies ace Cliff Lee, but, at 37 years of age, should he even be considered as an option to upgrade the rotation?

One team that has called about Marcell Ozuna is the Rangers, and a young pitcher could be part of a possible package.

Around the League

Ken Griffey Jr. and Mike Piazza have been elected to the Hall of Fame, becoming the highest and lowest draft picks, respectively, to ever receive the call.

Alex Gordon has signed a $72 million dollar deal to remain with the Royals and continue to be the face of the franchise.

Neftali Feliz, the former Rookie of the Year, has signed a one-year contract with the Pirates.

Roy Halladay has slammed Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens on twitter regarding their PED use and Hall of Fame cases.
