Rumors roundup: More moves in Oakland?

A look at the latest rumors around the major leagues, beginning with the Oakland Athletics reshaping their infield.

Jerry Crasnick MLB Sr. Writer 

Mariners GM Jerry Dipoto isn't pausing for the holiday. MLB sources said he's talked to the Marlins about a trade that would bring outfielder Marcell Ozuna to Seattle. Miami is seeking young, controllable starting pitching, and Roenis Elias and Nate Karns both fit that description. Taijuan Walker is almost certainly out of reach, and James Paxton's injury issues would make him a risky bet for Miami.

Marlins are a work in progress

They have a new skipper (Don Mattingly), an MVP candidate (Giancarlo Stanton) and a Cy Young contender (Jose Fernandez). But are they anything more than a third-place team? MLB status check (Insider)

Marlins prospect turning heads

J.T. Riddle could develop into a valid defensive shortstop who clubs 12-15 homers a year with a handful of gap doubles. At worst, he'll be a really good utility option. Thanks to his AFL play, the 13th-round pick put himself on the radar. Arizona Fall League recap (Insider)

Should Miami trade Marcell Ozuna?

His 4.5 WAR in 2014 aside, Ozuna's poor plate approach and dipping defense are concerning. For a team seeking a cheap solution in center, however, an off year might not be worrisome after all. Buyer's Guide: Outfielders (Insider)

Marlins to exclude Boras from Fernandez talks

The Marlins don't want agent Scott Boras involved in any discussions regarding Jose Fernandez's workload after the ace returned from Tommy John surgery in July.

Adam Rubin ESPN Staff Writer 

Scott Boras is not enthralled with how the Marlins handled Marcell Ozuna this summer. Ozuna spent a month in the minors. Hes a lifetime .265 hitter. And I can find you 30 players in the major leagues that went 1-for-36 at some time in their career and did not get sent to the minor leagues, Boras said Wednesday. & I just think when you do those things, it sends a message to players, it sends a message in the locker room, and it sends a message to everyone that looks at the organization that there is a calculus going on beyond performance.

Adam Rubin ESPN Staff Writer 

Scott Boras refuted any suggestion that he engaged in recent extension talks with the Marlins about Jose Fernandez. "I read something that there was a current offer out," Boras said Wednesday. "I had a discussion with Dan Jennings I believe it was in January or February of last year. We havent had any discussions about Jose since then."

Adam Rubin ESPN Staff Writer 

How should Jose Fernandez be handled by the Marlins in 2016? Certainly the doctors are going to prescribe a gradual program for him, agent Scott Boras said Wednesday. He threw somewhere in the area of 65, 70 innings [in 2015]. & I think his career high is 170, 180. So Im sure well have discussions.
