Marlins land another big fish, agreeing to six-year, $106 million deal with Reyes

The suddenly splurging Miami Marlins landed their second big free agent in a matter of days, agreeing Sunday night to a $106 million, six-year contract with All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press.

After adding All-Star closer Heath Bell for $27 million over three years, the Marlins gave Reyes, the NL batting champion, a deal that includes a club option for 2018 that would make the contract worth $120 million.

Manny Ramirez applied for reinstatement to Major League Baseball, and his suspension for a second failed drug test was cut Sunday from 100 games to 50 because he sat out nearly all of last season.
