Jose Fernandez Newsbeat

Tuesday, February 16, 2016

Jose Fernandez innings limit being discussed by Miami Marlins, agent Scott Boras, and sides are ready to zero in on number as spring training nears | FOX Sports

Hill, for his part, said Monday in an email that the team has formulated a “tentative game plan . . . that we will review with Jose in spring training.” Hill added that the Marlins’ baseball operations department, team medical staff, Dr. Neal ElAttrache (who performed the surgery), and Fernandez himself have had—or will have—voices in the decision-making process.

So, the parties agree a consensus is necessary. That’s good. But the ultimate number—which caused so much controversy for Harvey last fall—remains unknown. Boras and the Marlins sparred early in the offseason about how much influence Boras could have on Fernandez’s workload; they reconciled in time for Chen, a Boras client, to sign a five-year, $80 million deal with the Marlins. Now the Fernandez issue is back.

The Marlins, according to one source, will be reluctant to place a hard cap on Fernandez before the season, preferring to agree on a range that could be scaled based on the number of stressful innings encountered during the year.

Unidentified fourth team enters trade talks for Miami Marlins ace Jose Fernandez

Astros?

The Los Angeles Dodgers, Arizona Diamondbacks and New York Yankees are all known to have spoken about Fernandez with the Marlins, who have said publicly that their ace is unavailable even while they continue to entertain trade talks about the 23-year-old right-hander.
