Report: Marlins and Jose Reyes Agree to Six-year DealBy
10:10 PM — The deal does not include a no-trade clause, which I think is also a plus for the Marlins.
10:03 PM – According to a tweet from FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, the Marlins have signed Jose Reyes to a six-year deal worth $106MM.
We’ve been aware of the heavy Reyes interest from the Marlins since the season ended, but no one could have predicted the two sides agreeing to a deal. Easily one of the more coveted free agents on the market, Reyes now joins an infield consisting of a couple of the National League’s best players. The deal is pending a physical, which, we all could assume the Marlins will tackle carefully.
Should everything go as expected, the Marlins will have already signed a huge name (their apparent wish when the off-season started) and a semi-big name in Heath Bell. We don’t know the contractual breakdown as of yet, but it’s basically eighteen-or-so million dollars annually heading to the pocket of Jose Reyes.
