Jeter’s group set to buy Mar­lins

Los Angeles Times - - BASEBALL -

End­ing a months-long saga, the Mi­ami Mar­lins on Fri­day told Major League Base­ball they in­tend to sign an agree­ment to sell the team to a group that in­cludes former New York Yan­kees star Derek Jeter, a per­son fa­mil­iar with ne­go­ti­a­tions told the As­so­ci­ated Press.

Jeter would be a lim­ited part­ner in the group led by Bruce Sher­man, a New York ven­ture cap­i­tal­ist who has a home in Naples, Fla. The group re­port­edly will pay about $1.2 bil­lion to buy the Na­tional League team from Jeffrey Lo­ria.

Con­tr­eras, who has hit 10 of his 21 homers since the All-Star break, went on the 10-day dis­abled list with a ham­string strain and is ex­pected to miss four to six weeks . . . . Seat­tle, in the thick of the race for the sec­ond AL wild-card spot, will be with­out ace left-han­der James

Pax­ton for at least three weeks be­cause of a pec­toral strain . . . . The Yan­kees put left-han­der CC

Sa­bathia on the DL with right knee in­flam­ma­tion but ex­pect him to miss only one start.
