The free agent short stop spent the first nine seasons of his career on the New York Mets, originally signing as an amateur free agent in 1999. The 28-year old shortstop the first big splash the new look Miami Marlins have made so far since offering up a deal to Albert Pujols. With the reported addition of Reyes to the infield, it's expected that current Marlins shortstop Hanley Ramirez will move to third base. Ramirez has expressed reluctance to do so in the past, but the addition of Reyes to the left side of the infield should make it rather formidable.

For his career, Reyes is a .292 hitter and coming off a career best .337 average in 2011. Last season, Reyes had 44 RBI and 39 stolen bases on the season.
