Something for MLB to consider: A Jose Fernandez spirit award, presented to the player who best exemplifies love and passion for the game.

As part of a new agreement on opioids being negotiated between Major League Baseball and the players’ union, MLB will remove marijuana from the list of banned substances for minor leaguers, sources tell The Athletic. Major leaguers have not been subject to testing for marijuana.
