Report: Marlins' Offer To Albert Pujols Is Worth Over $200 Million

Tuesday December 6th, 2011

It was reported earlier that Albert Pujols had received a 10-year offer from the Miami Marlins. Jon Morosi of Fox Sports has now confirmed that the value of that deal is worth over $200 million.

It is believed that Pujols and the Marlins are currently working on a disagreement in the contract over a no-trade clause, which could represent the final hurdle before the two sides agree to terms. It is believed that the Marlins current offer for first baseman is greater than the one offered by the St. Louis Cardinals last offseason. The Chicago Cubs are also believed to have given Pujols a contract offer.

The Marlins have already made a big splash in free-agency this winter, having signed Jose Reyes to a six-year $106 million deal, and Heath Bell to a  three-year $27 million deal. If Pujols were to sign with the Marlins, he would become just the second player in baseball history to sign a deal worth more than $200 million.
