Marlins very close to signing Moran

MIAMI — The Marlins are very close to finalizing a deal with Colin Moran, their first-round Draft pick.

The contract is expected to be finalized before Friday’s 5 p.m. ET deadline for all teams to sign their picks.

Miami selected Moran sixth overall in June’s First-Year Player Draft.

Moran is a left-handed hitting third baseman from the University of North Carolina. The slot value for the sixth overall pick is $3.5 million.

A deal could be completed by late Thursday.
