Marlins #27 Giancarlo Stanton Black Cool Base Stitched Youth MLB Jersey



The Miami Marlins jerseys have succeeded in their quest for a front line starting pitcher that won’t require dealing one of their core players or cost them a No. 1 draft pick.

The Marlins jerseys have reached agreement with former Orioles jerseys left hander Wei Yin Chen on a five year, $80 million contract, according to a source with knowledge of the deal.

Chen, a 30 year old from Taiwan, will slot into the rotation behind cheap Jose Fernandez jersey and provide a significant upgrade in major league experience and success, elevating the Marlins jerseys’ objective toward contending in the National League East.

He was 11 8 with a 3.34 ERA in 31 starts in 2015. In four big league seasons, all with Baltimore, Chen was 46 32 record with a 3.72 ERA in 117 starts.

In an active day, the Marlins jerseys also reached agreement with veteran infielder cheap Chris Johnson jersey, according to the same source.

The Marlins jerseys have not confirmed either deal. The club does not comment until signings are officially completed and still has not announced an agreement with journeyman right hander Edwin Jackson reported more than a week ago.

As is common with Marlins jerseys signings, the Chen deal features creative financing, with the money back loaded and containing an opt out clause after two years. Ken Rosenthal, of Fox Sports, reported Chen will receive an $8 million signing bonus and $6 million in 2016 and $14 million in 2017 before he can walk away if he believes he can better the $52 million that would remain on this contract.

With cheap Alex Gordon jersey deciding to return to Kansas City, the free agent outfield market is one name thinner. And that could make Marlins jerseys center fielder cheap Marcell Ozuna jersey an even more coveted name on the trade market.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports tweeted Wednesdaythat the market for Ozuna “is moving fast”.

Johnson, 31, will provide an experienced right handed bat off the bench who can platoon at first with left handed hitting cheap Justin Bour jersey and also back up cheap Martin Prado jersey at third. He is a .280 career hitter in seven seasons with three teams.

Born in Naples, Johnson played two seasons for Stetson University. He batted .255 in 2015 in 83 games for the Braves jerseys and Indians jerseys with three home runs. In 2013, he batted .321 as a regular third baseman for Atlanta in 142 games.

A curious aspect of the Chen signing is he is represented by agent Scott Boras, who the Marlins jerseys have clashed with regarding Fernandez and outfielder cheap Marcell Ozuna jersey.

The deal with Chen suggests that much of the speculation about the Marlins jerseys being unable to do business with the super agent are overblown. It could also preclude the necessity of trading Ozuna to upgrade pitching.

Ozuna has been at the forefront of trade rumors throughout the offseason since supposedly falling out of favor with owner Jeffrey Loria cheap authentic jerseys last season. But Marlins jerseys officials are reluctant to part with the talented young outfielder who had a down season in 2015 but possesses a combination of power and speed that is difficult to find, and has not yet reached arbitration eligibility.

Because Chen rejected Baltimore’s qualifying offer, the Orioles jerseys would receive a compensatory draft pick. The Marlins jerseys’ first round pick at No. 7 overall is protected, though they would have to surrender their next pick at No. 46.

The Marlins jerseys have been reluctant to give multi year contracts to pitchers, but apparently the number of years and Chen’s age and history of reliability fall within their parameters.

Chen’s best season was in 2014 when he was 16 6 with a 3.54 ERA in 31 starts for the Orioles jerseys.

The Marlins jerseys haven’t made a notable signing of a free agent pitcher since 2011 when they gave Mark Buehrle a four year, $58 million deal, only to trade him after one season.

Arbitration hearings will be conducted from Feb. 1 21 and negotiations can continue until then. The Marlins jerseys’ practice has been to cease negotiations after submitting their figure for a playing, but they deviated from that last year when they signed reliever cheap Mike Dunn jersey just before his hearing.
