Arizona Diamondbacks

Jose Fernandez is reportedly available for a "very very high" price

Major League Baseball's Winter Meetings begin Sunday, but the talks have already started. 

The Marlins discussed trading Jose Fernandez to the Arizona Diamondbacks at a "very very high" price, according to Phoenix sports radio host John Gambadoro

Marlins president of baseball operations, Michael Hill, told the Associated Press on Thursday that the team is "not shopping" Fernandez. 

While the Marlins may not be doing the shopping, teams have certainly inquired about the star pitcher --- as Sirius XM's Craig Mish previously reported.

Fernandez approached Marlins brass on multiple occasions last season asking when he'd be dealt, something that I noted in November

Will Fernandez get his trade wish and, if so, will the Marlins get their high asking price? We may find out soon.
