http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/7316606/miami-marlins-agree-six-year-deal-jose-reyesThe Miami Marlins and shortstop Jose Reyes agreed to terms on a six-year, $106 million deal Sunday, sources told ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney.
The guarantee for the first six years totals $102 million, sources told ESPN.com's Jayson Stark. The deal includes an option for a seventh year, with a guaranteed $4 million.
Sources told ESPNDeportes' Enrique Rojas that the option would be worth $22 million.
Reyes, 28, is coming off the best year in his career. He hit .337 for the New York Mets to win his first batting title. In nine years, all with the Mets, he has batted .292 with 370 steals and 740 runs scored.
"We'll see whether those rumors turn out to be true," Mets general manager Sandy Alderson told ESPNNewYork.com's Adam Rubin about Reyes' reported deal with the Marlins. "If they are true, I think that Jose at this point is beyond where we would have been."
Earlier in the offseason, Miami offered Reyes a six-year, $90 million deal, which he rejected.
Reyes' signing would mean the Marlins' All-Star shortstop, Hanley Ramirez, will have to change positions. Publicly, the Marlins are saying they haven't decided whether Ramirez would move to third base or center field. However, one source close to Ramirez told ESPN.com that Ramirez already has agreed to move to third base next spring.
