Move over (to third base), Hanley Ramirez. As long as he passes a routine physical, Jose Reyes will become the Marlins' new shortstop. Reyes and the Marlins agreed to terms on a six-year deal that will reportedly pay him $102 million, the largest contract the Marlins have ever given to a player.

Reyes, the National League batting champ last season with a .337 average with the Mets, agreed to join the Marlins after the team sweetened their initial offer to an amount he couldn't refuse.
