The Toronto Blue Jays and Miami Marlins had serious talks in November about a deal involving All-Star outfielder Teoscar Hernandez, according to Barry Jackson and Craig Mish of the Miami Herald.

Toronto reportedly would've likely acquired third baseman Brian Anderson and at least one starting pitcher from Miami. Pablo Lopez and Elieser Hernandez were rumored to be available early in the offseason.

Hernandez, a two-time Silver Slugger, went deep 32 times with 116 RBIs and a .870 OPS during his age-28 campaign in 2021. His bat could've helped a Marlins club that finished with the third-worst offensive rating in baseball last season, according to FanGraphs.

The two teams haven't spoken since the lockout ended, adds Jackson and Mish.

The Blue Jays ended up trading for third baseman Matt Chapman and signed left-hander Yusei Kikuchi in free agency. Meanwhile, the Marlins added reigning World Series MVP Jorge Soler.
