Marlins roll out the red carpet for Jose Reyes, show him their new ballpark

According to the NY Post, The Marlins gave free agent shortstop Jose Reyes a tour of their new ballpark Wednesday, team president David Samson confirmed on a Miami radio program.

“To be [interested], you have to meet each other and figure out from an investment standpoint where you’re going to go. We’re still working on that," Samson said, according to “We wanted him to see the ballpark. And see the ballpark, he did.”

The Marlins are also courting left-hander Mark Buehrle, who took a ballpark tour Tuesday, the person said. In addition, owner Jeffrey Loria and a contingent of team officials plan to visit the Dominican Republic on Thursday to watch a private workout by highly regarded Cuban outfielder Yoenis Cespedes.

“I would certainly count [Jose] amongst our priorities,” Samson said. "But we have a priority that includes pitching and includes position players. We have multiple priorities.”

The perennially thrifty Marlins are expected to increase their payroll from $57 million this year to about $80 million in 2012.

Mets Sign SS Alfredo Reyes

According to the Dominican Prospect League, The Mets have signed SS Alfredo Reyes.

Reyes, 17, played behind former DPL All-Star Christopher Tamarez (NYY signee) for most of DPL Season 1.
The New York Mets signed Reyes after watching him develop into an athletic shortstop who can make the difficult plays on defense look routine.  Reyes showed gap power and an ability to control the strike zone at the plate.  His wiry-athletic frame allows him to project well at the SS position.   The Mets signed Reyes for $200,000.

Sandy has his eyes open in the Dominican Republic where he was stationed for awhile..........
