According to Ken Rosenthal, the Miami Marlins have reached an agreement with former Chicago White Sox ace Mark Buehrle on a four-year, $58 million deal. The deal is unconfirmed at this point in time.
By signing the contract, Buehrle will be reunited with former White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen, who was traded for and hired to helm the Marlins just a few months ago. Buerhle played eight seasons under Guillen.
In 12 seasons, Buehrle posts a 161-119 record overall, including a no-hitter and a perfect game to his accord. He also sports a 3.83 career ERA, and has mowed through 1396 batters over that time.
Prior to the move, the Marlins had been deadlocked in discussions with first baseman Albert Pujols alongside other ace on the market, C.J. Wilson. Buerhle, 32, will sign the contract after months of speculation over whether he may even retire.
Between the acquisitions of pitcher Heath Bell and shortstop Jose Reyes, the Marlins have now committed $191 million in just four days.
