Report: Miami Marlins Make Offer To Albert Pujols

Albert Pujols was in Miami on Friday to meet with Marlins officials, and according to the Post-Dispatch's Derrick Goold, Pujols left the meeting with a "substantial offer."

Pujols spent most of the afternoon with Marlins officials and, according to a source familiar with the Marlins' thinking, left those meetings with a substantial offer.

Pujols is a free agent for the first time in his career, and Friday represented the first of what could become a number of recruiting-like visits for the first baseman. Pujols stopped in Miami for the meetingson his way home to St. Louis from the Dominican Republic, where he had been doing work with his foundation, The Pujols Family Foundation.

It's the first of several potential visits with interested clubs, Goold reports. Other teams that may be interested in making a play for Pujols include the Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Dodgers and Texas Rangers.
