Report: Marlins Offered Jose Reyes A Six-Year $90 Million Contract

The Miami Marlins offered Jose Reyes a six-year $90 million contract, a source has told Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.

It has been widely speculated this winter that the free-agent shortstop would be heading to the newly rebranded Marlins after a nine-year career in New York. Reports have said that Reyes is impressed with the Marlins commitment to compete in the near future as well as the warm weather Florida has to offer. Reyes also reportedly has an interest in playing for Miami’s new manager, Ozzie Guillen.

There are still several obstacles before that must be overcome before a deal can be worked out however. It was reported yesterday by Joel Sherman of the New York Post that Reyes will likely not sign anywhere until he gets at least a $100 million contract.

“An exec interested in Reyes said, ‘The target is $100 million minimum. Until he gets a deal that starts with a 1, he will not sign,’ Sherman tweeted yesterday.

There is also the issue of Hanley Ramirez, the Marlins current All-Star caliber shortstop who is reportedly not as open to changing positions as had been previously reported this offseason. According to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, Ramirez is not as good of a friend with Reyes as had been portrayed in the media.
