Yoenis Cespedes Rumors: Marlins Offered Cuban OF Less Than $40 Million

According to a report by Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, the Miami Marlins have offered Cuban OF Yoenis Cespedes less than the $40 million that was reported earlier this week.

The offer is still reportedly for six years, and the money being at a lower point than $40 million may make some sense considering where the negotiation process is. Another factor keeping the Marlins offer down may be that, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, no other team besides Miami has met with Cespedes, let alone made him an offer.
