Report: Marlins Agree To Terms With Mark Buehrle On $58 Million Deal

Mark Buehrle has agreed to terms on a four-year, $58 million contract with the Miami Marlins, according to ESPN’s Jim Bowden.

The signing marks the third major deal made by the Marlins over the course of the past week, having already signed National League batting champion Jose Reyes to a six-year, $106 million deal and closer Heath Bell to a three-year, $27 million contract. Buehrle will now join a rotation featuring Josh Johnson, Ricky Nolasco, Anibal Sanchez, and Chris Volstad.

Last season, the 32-year-old posted a 13-9 record for the Chicago White Sox with a 3.59 ERA in 205.1 innings pitched. Over the course of his 12-year-career with Chicago, he has averaged a 15-11 record with a 3.83 ERA in an average 233 innings of work.

It was reported earlier today that the Marlins considered themselves out of the running for top free-agent Albert Pujols, and that as a result they would turn their attention toward pitching. It is also believed that the team has offered free-agent starter C.J. Wilson a six-year deal. It is unknown whether that deal is still on the table after the Buehrle signing.
