Good morning baseball fans!
Miami is still hoping to add starting pitching and is reportedly interested in Wei-Yin Chen and Yaisel Sierra:
Since the end of the season, the Marlins have been seeking starting pitching depth. Heading into 2016, the organization has Jose Fernandez, Tom Koehler and Jarred Cosart slotted in the starting rotation. Jackson could be a starter, but the Marlins could also use him as a long relief option.
Toronto has a notable amount of starting pitching depth and is considering moving R.A. Dickey this winter.
Several clubs are interested in signing Jimmy Rollins to play second base in 2016.
Arizona has not expressed interest in Fernando Rodney despite hoping to improve its bullpen.
The Orioles have not made progress on a potential deal with Chris Davis, according to The Baltimore Sun's Eduardo Encina:
As we head into the weekend, I’m hearing that little has changed. The Orioles and Davis’ agent, Scott Boras, are no closer to a deal. The Orioles remain content that they’ve made Davis a fair offer and have yet to see any other serious suitors step up. They’re not going to outbid themselves after making a seven-year, $150 million offer.
Miami officially signed Edwin Jackson to a deal that includes a full no trade clause:

St. Louis' hacking scandal is back:
On Friday, Correa was formally indicted. As it turns out, hacking into a rival company’s information is frowned upon in this country. With this latest turn of events, the public has learned a whole lot more about what actually went down. Correa got into a ton of information here, accessing an enormous amount of scouting reports for draft prospects, and even getting into Houston’s trade notes prior to the July 31 deadline.
