Report: Yelich, Hechavarria turn down offers from Marlins
by Sean d'Oliveira |

The Marlins are no longer discussing multiyear contracts with outfielder Christian Yelich and shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria, reports the Miami Herald.

A significant gap between Yelich and the Marlins has caused contract talks on a long-term deal to stall. Hechavarria turned down the Marlins' multiyear contract because the offer was not significant enough. He can become a free agent after the 2018 season, while Yelich can become a free agent after 2019.

by Igor Mello |

The Marlins have agreed to terms with free-agent outfielder Ichiro Suzuki on Friday, Baseball Insider Jon Heyman confirms. Craig Mish of MLB Network Radio first reported the deal. According to Heyman, he'll receive $2 million in 2015.

Suzuki, 41, will serve as Miami's fourth outfielder, behind Giancarlo Stanton, Marcell Ozuna and Christian Yelich. Ichiro is 156 hits shy of 3,000 career hits, and will now have a chance to reach that feat in Miami. Last season, he hit .284/.324/.334 with one home run and 20 RBI over 356 at-bats with the Yankees. He stole 15 bases in 18 tries.

Marlins not expecting Jose Fernandez back until after June 1
by Michael Hurcomb |

Marlins owner Jeffery Loria said he expects starting pitcher Jose Fernandez, who is coming off Tommy John surgery, to return sometime after June 1, according to The Miami Herald

Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill agreed and said Monday about Fernandez's return, "We’re still thinking June, July area."

“Once we get him on the mound, we’ll get a little more clarity," Hill said. "When you’re dealing with those injuries, you’re always cautiously optimistic.

“He’s worked extremely hard. He’s done a tremendous job doing everything he needs to do to get himself back. We won’t put a timetable on it. We don’t want him to feel any pressure.”

The 22-year-old Fernandez was a breakout star in 2013. He not only made the All-Star team, but he won the NL Rookie of the Year and finished third in the NL Cy Young race. Fernandez made eight starts in 2014 before having Tommy John surgery.
