Miami has been receiving calls from teams interested in Marcell Ozuna, but the club would only move him if it is "blown away", according to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro.

Is there a chance the Marlins acquire a pitcher in exchange for Ozuna? Yes, but the organization might not be open to moving him.

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.

The Marlins are close to signing Edwin Jackson to a major league deal, but details of the contract have yet to be revealed.

Miami has several young starters who would likely benefit from having Jackson on the roster as either a long reliever or a starter.

Mike Piazza, who was briefly a Marlin, was voted into the Hall of Fame.

Scott Boras is still under the impression the Marlins will not trade Jose Fernandez.

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?

Around the League

San Francisco signed Denard Span to a three-year deal.

Milwaukee signed Chris Carter to a one-year deal.

Washington is still hoping to add a catcher this winter.

Kelly Johnson will head back to Atlanta with a one-year contract.
