Jose Reyes Rumors: Miami Marlins Make Him Free-Agent Offer

Jose Reyes has his first significant free-agent offer of the offseason, and it comes from the newly-aggressive Miami Marlins. Team owner Jeffrey Loria said Friday that with a new team name and new stadium comes a new attitude, admitting that he made offers to Reyes, slugger Albert Pujols and pitcher Mark Buehrle.

“We’re looking at everyone and we want to make this team as special as we can,” said Loria, who confirmed that offers were made to each of the three players. “We would be foolish not to entertain the possibilities of some of these players. It’s a new page. With this new stadium, we want to step into a new light.”

No word on the size of the offer to Reyes, or to any of the big-name free agents targeted by the Marlins.

An interesting note, though, in that current Marlins shorstop Hanley Ramirez, an often-moody star, does not appear thrilled about moving to third base if Reyes decides to join the Marlins.

“I’m a shortstop right now, so I don’t know. I consider myself a shortstop,” he said.

Ramirez’ attitude is actually something Reyes might want to consider before he makes any decision.
