Juan Rodriguez of the Sun-Sentinel reports that while the Marlins have upped their offer for Aroldis Chapman, their offer is not the highest and they are hoping that his comfort level in South Florida helps make up the difference. I guess I understand the Cuban-player-in-Miami thing, but Chapman has played ball all over the world and is, technically speaking, a resident of Andorra. I think he’ll find a way to adjust even if he’s not in Miami.
So where will he go? Rodriguez reports that the Angels and Blue Jays have the highest offers out to the lefty, both in the $21 million range. Chapman, Rodriguez says, is expected to make a decision in the next three or four days.
