Miami Marlins Ink Jose Reyes For 6 Years

The Miami Marlins wanted to make a big splash in the free agent market this winter and they made their first big move by signing shortstop Jose Reyes to a six year, $106 million deal. Reyes rejected a six year, $90 million offer earlier this offseason from Miami.

Reyes, 28, was a star with the New York Mets for nine seasons and is coming off his best statistical year, hitting .337 and winning the national league batting title.

By signing Reyes, the Marlins have to figure out what to do with current shortstop Hanley Ramirez. It seems apparent that Ramirez will move to third base, giving the Marlins one of the best all around left side of the infields in the game today.
