Report: Marlins offered contract to Yeonis Cespedes
According to reports, the Marlins offered Cespedes a six-year deal worth $40 million. The Marlins have been interested in Cespedes for months, the report states.
“It was good to see him again,” Marlins president David Samson said Wednesday on The Dan LeBatard Show. “We hadn’t seen him since he was in the Dominican. He’s still not a free agent, officially.
“But he was able to be in town for some appointments, I guess. He wanted to come and see the ballpark, and we’re always happy to show people the ballpark.”
Cespedes cannot legally sign with the team until he is cleared by the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control.
