MIAMI (AP) — Jose Reyes is being courted by the Florida Marlins, who treated the All-Star shortstop to a tour of their new ballpark and lunch on South Beach.

Reyes was in Miami on Wednesday, team president David Samson said on his weekly radio show on WAXY-AM. The Marlins are also pursuing left-hander Mark Buehrle, who took the ballpark tour Tuesday, Samson said.

In addition, owner Jeffrey Loria and a contingent of team officials plan to visit the Dominican Republic on Thursday to watch a private workout by highly regarded Cuban outfielder Yoenis Cespedes.

The Marlins will unveil a new logo and uniform at the ballpark Friday, when the team will officially become the Miami Marlins. Samson estimated there’s only a 1 percent chance of signing Reyes in time for that event.
