Miami Marlins president Michael Hill says the team will not trade pitcher Jose Fernandez, reports MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro.

Fernandez has been the subject of trade rumors this winter, with the Marlins unsure if they will be able to sign the pitcher to a long-term deal. Fernandez, 23, will reach free agency in 2019.

The Marlins have historically opted to trade promising young players—such as Miguel Cabrera, Dontrelle Willis, Josh Beckett and Hanley Ramirez—rather than sign them to extensions.

Fernandez has spent three years in the major leagues, missing much of the last two seasons due to Tommy John surgery. In 47 career starts, Fernandez has a 22–9 record with a 2.40 ERA and 336 strikeouts.
