Miami Marlins Offseason Rumors: Team Hosting C.J. Wilson Today

The Miami Marlins have been the darlings of the MLB offseason so far. They have offers out to some of the biggest position players out there, so there's no reason why they shouldn't get it on the best starting pitcher as well, right? Well according to Juan C. Rodriguez of the Sun Sentinel, the Marlins will host Wilson on Monday.

The buzz has died down a bit on the Marlins since their initial free agent flurry, but it should start picking up again. Add left-hander C.J. Wilson among those the Marlins will try to woo with a South Florida visit and stadium tour. Wilson, who many consider the best available starting pitcher in the  free agent market, will be in town Monday. Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle and Albert Pujols already have come through and received offers.

Wilson might cost a little bit less than some of the other free agents that the Marlins are going after, but he will still carry a pretty significant price tag.
