MIAMI – Moments before the Miami Marlins hosted the Home Run Derby on Monday night, Forbes reported that the Marlins had agreed to sell the team to Jorge Mas, but the Miami Herald reports the team is vehemently denying they have reached an agreement with Mas.

In fact, the Herald reports that Mas, a Miami businessman, hasn't even made a formal offer yet to buy the Marlins.

"There's no agreement reached with anyone," Marlins president David Samson told the Herald.

The Forbes report stated Mas had agreed to pay $1.17 billion for the Marlins.
