Although the Marlins are playing for the present, here’s a look into one of their top prospects that has a bright future.

The Fish have signaled to teams that they are willing to listen to offers on closer A.J. Ramos.

The Marlins are continuing their hunt for pitching, it was reported they have reached out to representatives of Dillon Gee.

Besides starting pitching, the Marlins have also reached out to a few relievers though some may be too expensive.

Around the League

The first big domino of the year has fallen as Yoenis Cespedes has inked a four year deal to rejoin the Mets in Queens next season.

The Cubs have filled their centerfield vacancy by signing free agent outfielder Jon Jay to a one year deal.

The Cardinals finished towards the bottom of the league in third base production this past season. It seems as if they found a possible solution named Justin Turner.

With the signing of Cespedes, the Mets now have a glut of outfielders and are looking to move one. The Blue Jays are reported to be making a push for Jay Bruce.

The Yankees are one of four known finalists for veteran left-handed pitcher Rich Hill. They have competition and Hill’s market is heating up.

The Mariners search for established veteran starting pitching has brought them to consider Doug Fister.
