  • Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune hears the Padres are among the teams that have inquired about Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich.<p><b>Advice</b>: Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reported Wednesday that the Marlins intend to keep Yelich with the intention of structuring their rebuild around the 26-year-old outfielder, who is under control through 2021 with a club option for 2022. But there are rumblings that Yelich wants out of Miami after watching Giancarlo Stanton, Marcell Ozuna, and Dee Gordon all get shipped off to other teams over the last week. San Diego has the prospects to get it done, though there would be offers coming in from a range of clubs -- both contending and non-contending -- if the Marlins decide to open up the bidding.

  • Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports hears the Marlins "intend to hold onto Christian Yelich."<p><b>Advice</b>: There is a massive organizational fire sale underway in Miami, with Giancarlo Stanton, Marcell Ozuna, and Dee Gordon already out the door, but Yelich is under the Marlins' control through 2021 with a club option for 2022 and they apparently want to try to build around the 26-year-old outfielder. Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area confirms this thought, tweeting Wednesday that the Giants "have repeatedly been told" by the Marlins that Yelich is not available.</p><p><b>More</b>: <a href="https://twitter.com/JonHeyman/status/941029340942303233">Jon Heyman on Twitter</a></p>

  • Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports confirms that the Marlins are actively shopping Christian Yelich.<p><b>Advice</b>: Miami has already dealt Giancarlo Stanton to the Yankees and there's a reported agreement in place that will send Marcell Ozuna to the Cardinals. Now it sounds like the Marlins' fire sale will extend to Yelich, who is under contractual control through 2021 with a club option for 2022. MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reported Tuesday that the Braves and Diamondbacks are among the teams with interest in acquiring the 26-year-old outfielder. Dan Straily and J.T. Realmuto could also be on the block for the rapidly-rebuilding Fish.</p><p><b>More</b>: <a href="https://twitter.com/JeffPassan/status/941013564277579776">Jeff Passan on Twitter</a></p>

  • According to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com, "at least 10 teams" have inquired on Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich.<p><b>Advice</b>: Marcell Ozuna is being shopped at this week's Winter Meetings, but Yelich could be the bigger prize. While Ozuna has two years of team control remaining, Yelich is owed $43.25 million through 2021 with a $15 million club option (or a $1.25 million buyout) for 2022. Frisaro hears that the Braves, Diamondbacks, and Cardinals are among the teams who have checked in on Yelich so far.</p><p><b>More</b>: <a href="https://twitter.com/JoeFrisaro/status/940647901906300930">Joe Frisaro on Twitter</a></p>
