Marlins offered Jose Fernandez to D-Backs in 2016

The Score

The Miami Marlins were apparently close to trading pitcher Jose Fernandez before the 2016 season, but the deal ultimately fell through.

Former Marlins president David Samson said the team offered Fernandez to the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for five players, including pitcher Patrick Corbin, third baseman Brandon Drury, and outfielder A.J. Pollock, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

"Arizona turned it down," Samson said. "We thought it was going to happen but we never had any agreement."
