The Marlins are indeed for sale.

It’s no longer a question—the Miami Marlins seem to be for sale.

Though the Kushner family has been linked to the Marlins franchise recently, Marlins team president David Samson told Tim Healey of The Sun-Sentinel it’s unlikely Josh Kushner purchases the team.

However, Samson also said other offers are being considered more so than in the past, according to Healey:

Do the Marlins have other potential buyers?

“Oh yes,” Samson said. “There are many groups who are interested. We field offers often. The difference now is those offers are being looked at very seriously.

Those offers might be looked at more seriously now because Jeffrey Loria is reportedly a candidate to serve as the U.S. ambassador to France, but nonetheless, it seems the Marlins will be sold at some point in the coming months.

Last week, Forbes reported Loria has a “handshake agreement” to sell the team for $1.6 billion, though it doesn’t seem a sale is imminent.
