Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria has agreed to sell the franchise for .2 billion to a group led by New York The Sherman / Jeter group has about 16 investors and they have raised the money to purchase the team after months of seeking investors to meet Loria ’s asking price, the source said .

Jeter is believed to be contributing only $25 million of his own money but has a great relationship with Sherman, who will allow Jeter to essentially run the organization.

MLB officials are expected to discuss the sale, but not vote on it, in owners meetings in Chicago next week. Sherman and possibly Jeter are expected to meet with the ownership committee prior for a full vote of owners, which is the final required step for the sale's completion.

The vote could be weeks away, with closing expected the first week of October.

Miami businessman Jorge Mas also pursued the team and met with Marlins officials this week but did not match the $1.2 billion bid of the Sherman and Jeter group.

New York businessman Wayne Rothbaum, who led a competing group that included former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, also bid for the Marlins, before stopping his pursuit earlier this week.

Loria has owned the team since 2002 and won a World Series in 2003, but the Marlins haven't made the playoffs since then, the second-longest postseason drought in Major League Baseball behind the Seattle Mariners.

Reports: Marlins owner Loria agrees to sell team to Jeter group. Jeter would be a limited partner in the group led by venture capitalist Bruce Sherman , said the person, who confirmed the Marlins ' plans to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team had not commented.

The Marlins are expected to lose more than $60 million this season, according to a source who has seen their books, in part because their revenues are among the lowest in MLB and in part because their $115 million payroll is the largest in franchise history.

The Marlins' TV contracts pays the lowest of any team in MLB, and Marlins attendance traditionally ranks among the bottom five in MLB.

Loria decided to sell the team for personal reasons and had been seeking a buyer for months.

Marlins president David Samson on Friday declined to comment about where the sales process stood.

Businessobserver.com refers to Sherman as "the shrewd Naples investor who posted spectacular investment returns for years before the financial crisis and a bet on Bear Stearns blemished an otherwise stellar track record. Sherman's investing style is to select companies he thinks are undervalued."

Jeter, meanwhile, would give the Marlins cachet and a former player universally respected in baseball.

Jeter, 42, played his entire 20-year career with the Yankees before retiring after the 2014 season and was one of the most celebrated, heavily marketed and distinguished players of his era.

  He always hit 'em far; now Stanton is hitting 'em fast Given Giancarlo Stanton's recent home run binge, Derek Jeter may decide baseball's biggest contract is a bargain. Stanton signed a record $325 million, 13-year deal in 2014 with the Miami Marlins, and they still owe him about $300 million - an eye-popping number even to a former All-Star shortstop for the New York Yankees.Jeter's investment group agreed last week to buy the Marlins from Jeffrey Loria, and given the franchise's history of low revenue and attendance, there's already speculation the incoming regime may deem Stanton unaffordable.But lately, he looks like a keeper at any price.
