MLB report Starling Marte reportedly rejected multi million dollar extension offer

In the last hours it was announced that Starling Marte reportedly rejected a multi-million dollar contract extension offer with the Miami Marlins, to continue with the team for a few more seasons than MLB. The Dominican is in the last year of his contract with the Marlins and would become a free agent at the end of this season.

The journalist Bob Nightengale reported this Sunday, July 18, that Starling Marte would have refused to sign a contract extension with the Miami Marlins for three more years within the organization and an amount of $ 30 million dollars.

Nightengale adds in his report that the outfielder, who would become a free agent at the end of the 2021 MLB season, could be traded before the trade deadline.

Various sources say that it is not surprising that the Dominican rejected Miami’s offer, since Marte would have been seeking a contract for four more years and an amount of approximately $ 50 million dollars.

Starling Marte has had an outstanding 2021 MLB Season with the Miami Marlins, in which in 56 games in which he has seen action he has hit .286 in batting average, with 59 hits and seven home runs.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social media, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
