Only 1 group vying to buy Marlins, per Forbes report

Jeter, Bush only group in running


MIAMI – There is only one group interested in buying the Miami Marlins, per Forbes.

According to Forbes reporter Mike Ozanian, the group led by Derek Jeter and Jeb Bush has submitted "non-binding indication of interest" in the team.

However, the group led by Mitt Romney's son Tagg is reportedly out.

Forbes indicates that Jeter-Bush can only put in about $200 million of equity and are currently raising money.

Jeffrey Loria was seeking more than a billion dollars for the Marlins.

Loria bought the team in 2002 for $158 million.
