By way of the Chicago Tribune's Mark Gonzales comes a report that White Sox LHP Mark Buehrle has received a contract offer from the Marlins:
According to a tweet by SI.com's Jon Heyman, the Marlins have made an offer to Buehrle, who visited the Marlins' new stadium in Miami on Tuesday. That follows a report by FoxSports.com's Ken Rosenthal who tweeted that the Marlins also made offers to free agents Albert Pujols and Jose Reyes.
If the reports of those offers are all accurate, then the Marlins appear very serious about making a splash during this offseason. Buehrle just completed a 4-year, $56 million deal with the White Sox. He's been with the Sox for his entire major league career, which spans 12 seasons.
