Jose Reyes Signs With The Miami Marlins

According to MLB Trade Rumors, former New York Met Jose Reyes has agreed to a six-year deal with the Miami Marlins worth $106 million. Reyes will be staying in the National League East Division, but is heading down to South Beach to team up with Hanley Ramirez.

Ramirez will be moving to third base, and Reyes will cover shortstop for the new look Marlins. This marks the second big coup in free agency for the Marlins as they picked up Heath Bell in the last week as well when the former Padres closer agreed to a three-year deal worth $27 million.

Miami is now likely out of the running for Albert Pujols, but they are still being linked with other key free agents such as C.J. Wilson and Mark Buehrle. You can read more about the Marlins free agency by visiting Fish Stripes, the official Marlins home page on the SB Nation network of blogs.
