Marlins Are Involved In Jon Lester Talks

The Miami Marlins are in on the Jon Lester sweepstakes, but they won’t surrender top prospect Andrew Heaney for Lester, or any other rental deal, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

“We’re not going to be foolish,” President of Baseball Operations Michael Hill said. “We’re not going to be short-sighted. I think we understand where we’re at as an organization, but we also understand where we’re trying to go. I think that’s the balance that you strike at this time of year. We’ll see what happens these next two days, but there’s been a lot going on. You try to work through it and see if what you’re trying to do makes sense, not just in the near term, but in the long term.”
