The D-backs, of course, just dealt away a handful of players to land Shelby Miller of the Atlanta Braves. That set of players wouldn't seal the deal for Fernandez, though:

Dbacks people saying the package would not have come close to getting them Fernandez. Wow.— Nick Piecoro (@nickpiecoro) December 9, 2015
Fernandez will head into 2016 as his first full season following Tommy John surgery in 2014. In 11 starts in 2015, Fernandez went 6-1 with a 2.92 ERA, striking out 79 across 64 2/3 innings.
