Report: Marlins seriously pursuing Russell Branyan

According to sources, the Marlins are stepping up their pursuits for free agent Russell Branyan. Branyan was reportedly looking for a multi-year deal worth between 9-10 million dollars, but apparently no one was interested in paying him anywhere near that much. 

The Marlins are believed to be looking to sign Branyan on a one year, incentive-laden contract. If they sign him, it would push Gaby Sanchez back to Triple-A for another season. 

Branyan really has not drawn much interest elsewhere as of late. The Mets had some interest, but they are focusing on a catcher and may not want to spend on a first baseman as well. 

The Pirates, Orioles, and Indians could all potentially be in the first base market.
