MIAMI — Former New York Yankees star Derek Jeter and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush have joined forces in their attempt to buy the Miami Marlins, says a person familiar with the situation.
The person confirmed the partnership to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Wednesday because Jeter and Bush have not commented. They initially had competing interests in pursuit of the team.
Jeter, who retired in 2014 after 20 seasons with the Yankees, has long talked about owning a team. Bush’s brother, former President George W. Bush, was an owner of the Texas Rangers from 1989 to 1998.
TWINS: Minnesota postponed its game with Cleveland because of rain, rescheduling it as part of June 17 day-night doubleheader.
PADRES: Right-hander Jarred Cosart was put on the 10-day disabled list, a day after he was hurt during a loss to Arizona.
Cosart was injured while running the bases. He attempted to pitch after getting hurt but left in the fourth inning.
Also, right-hander Kevin Quackenbush was recalled from Triple-A El Paso.
RANGERS: Third baseman Adrian Beltre, on the disabled list with an injured calf, worked out with a team athletic trainer. Beltre went through a variety of running exercises and showed no lingering impact.
DODGERS: Los Angeles placed left-hander Grant Dayton on the 10-day disabled list with a left intercostal strain and recalled right-hander Josh Fields from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
MARINERS: The return of Jean Segura, sidelined by a hamstring strain, may be delayed until early next week.
Manager Scott Servais said Segura could end up going to Double-A Arkansas for a couple of rehab games and rejoin the Mariners in Detroit for the start of a series next Tuesday.
