(DALLAS) -- The Miami Marlins introduced All-Star closer Heath Bell to the media Monday. The 34-year-old Bell signed a three-year deal with the Fish worth $27 million.
“I’m just really excited to be here and hugely honored,” Bell said. “Let’s go play
Bell began his career with the New York Mets, but it wasn't until he went to the San Diego Padres that he developed into one of the top closers in the game.
“There’s just a lot of buzz about the Miami Marlins,” Bell said. “You can see the ownership, they want to go win.”
Another free-agent catch the Marlins have reeled in is shortstop Jose Reyes. The 28-year-old Reyes has agreed to a six-year deal with Miami worth $106 million, according to ESPN.
With Bell and Reyes in the fold, the Marlins are reportedly setting their sights on signing the prize of this year's free-agent class, slugging first baseman Albert Pujols.
