We’re about to find out how serious the Marlins are about signing Jose Dariel Abreu.

Earlier in the week the organization was well represented at Abreu’s two-day workout in the Dominican Republic.

Word is the organization is highly impressed with the power-hitting first baseman. Within the next two weeks bids are expected to come in for the 26-year-old Cuban native who is said to have a boyish face and fun-loving personality.

The Marlins are all-in on signing Abreu. But can they seal the deal? That will be up to team owner Jeffrey Loria and how much he is willing to spend.

For a player who has never played in the big leagues will they go past $40 million or $50 million if necessary?

The sense is the club is seriously thinking about it. The thought of having Giancarlo Stanton and Abreu in the middle of the order could immediately upgrade the team that scored the fewest runs in the Majors (513) this season.

At his workout Abreu showed an easy swing and the ball exploded off his bat.

Abreu is said to be more of a pure hitter than Stanton who has the edge in raw power.

The Marlins are not expected to be major players in the free agent market for established big league veterans. However the international market presents an attractive alternative.

Abreu’s price tag will be dramatically lower than say Robinson Cano who is said to be seeking $300 million.

Even if that is an inflated figure to start off with Cano still projects to make $200-plus million still out of Miami’s price league.
