Albert Pujols’ Mystery Team Not The New York Yankees

The “mystery team” who has offered a deal to coveted free-agent Albert Pujols is not the New York Yankees, according to a tweet from Buster Olney of ESPN.com.

Yesterday it was reported by Jayson Stark of ESPN that a “mystery team” was still in the running for Pujols amid the two other teams known to have provided him a substantial offer. According to Stark, the reason that team is attempting to keep its identity a mystery is that they are still attempting to trade their established first baseman in order to make room for the three-time Most Valuable Player. As a result, some had speculated that the New York Yankees, who have been quiet this winter, may have been looking to move first baseman Mark Teixeira to make a run at Pujols.

The Los Angeles Angels and the St. Louis Cardinals are the two known teams who have offered the three time MVP slugger a deal a major. The Miami Marlins were in the market for Pujols until his agent Dan Lozano informed the club that the Marlins are out of the running.

The Cardinals are looking to retain Pujols who hit .299/.366/.541 with 37 home runs and 99 RBIs last season in which St. Louis won the World Series. His longtime team is believed to have offered Pujols a 10-year, $220 million contract.
