Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria has a preliminary agreement to sell his team to a New York businessman, but the deal could fall through because the final purchase price hasn't been determined, a person with direct knowledge of the negotiations said Thursday.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Marlins have not commented publicly on the negotiations.

The preliminary agreement was for a purchase price of about $1.6 billion, the person said, but added that was before the prospective buyer did due diligence. The final offer by the potential buyer could be much lower, the person said.

Mets closer Jeurys Familia became the first player in franchise history to record 50 saves in a season with a 1-2-3 ninth inning during Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Marlins in Miami.

Familia broke Armando Benitez's previous Mets record of 43 saves in a season during August. He is the 13th player in MLB history to save 50 games in a season. By hitting No. 50, he also set the single-season record for saves by a Dominican pitcher, topping the 49 saves Jose Valverde recorded in 2011 and Francisco Cordero's 49 in 2004.

"I'm impressed with what I've been doing individually so far," Familia said after the game. "But, at the same time, I'm just trying to go out there and give it the best I can. I didn't say when the season started that I was going to save 50. No, I'm just trying to go out there and make sure to have fun and help the team any way I can for a win."

Latest Update

Rodriguez's publicist Ron Berkowitz released a statement Monday saying the veteran slugger will not play for any team for the remainder of this season. 

The statement said, "I want to put all of this talk to rest about Alex playing for any team this season... It's not happening. Like he said Friday night, he is happy and he is going to take some time to relax and hang with his family and friends."

Reports over the weekend said the Miami Marlins were possibly interested in signing Rodriguez.

The Miami Marlins are "probably a longshot" to sign Alex Rodriguez after the New York Yankees release him after Friday's game, according to Jon Heyman.

The Marlins, who lead the second wild card spot by half a game, have had internal discussions on whether to sign Rodriguez, who will be unconditionally released from his Yankees player contract after Friday and will return to his home in Miami for the remainder of the year, but according to Heyman, have not shown any evidence they will try to sign him.

Miami's interest largely depends on the health of first baseman Justin Bour, who has been out since July 6 with a sprained ankle, according to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro. Heyman says if the Marlins were to try to sign Rodriguez, it wouldn't be until rosters expand on Sept. 1.

Conforto, Collins and Matz 00:06:21
Michael Conforto, Terry Collins and Steven Matz discuss their reactions to the Mets' win over the Marlins on Sunday afternoon in Miami.

New York Mets LHP Steven Matz threw six scoreless innings in a 3-0 win over the Miami Marlins on the road on Sunday to earn his first win in nearly two months.

"It was very, very encouraging," manager Terry Collins said, according to the New York Daily News' Kristie Ackert. "His fastball really had late life to it. We saw a lot of swings and misses on his fastball. I thought his changeup and curveball and breaking ball he threw for strikes."

Matz (8-6) started the season 7-1 with a 2.36 ERA, but had been winless over his last nine starts with a 4.73 ERA. But on Sunday, he threw 64 of 99 pitches for strikes and struck out six batters in six four-hit innings for his first victory since May 25.

Post Game Extra: 04/11/16 00:03:19
Starter Steven Matz struggled in his season debut as the Mets were routed by the Marlins, 10-3, on Monday night.

The Mets lost for the third time in four games on their opening homestand, absorbing a 10-3 drubbing by the Miami Marlins on Monday night at Citi Field. >> Read the full AP recap at SNY.TV.

  • The Marlins blitzed Steven Matz for seven runs in the second inning, handing the young lefty his first major league defeat. Matz lasted just 1 2/3 innings, surrendering two walks and six hits, including a mammoth two-run home run to Giancarlo Stanton that ended his evening.
  • The seven runs allowed by Matz were a career-high. He surrendered just nine runs in six regular season starts in 2015.
  • The Mets surrendered just 12 runs through the first five games before allowing 10 on Monday.
  • Since going 0 for 4 on Opening Day, David Wright is 6 for 11 with three doubles, including 2 for 4 on Monday.
  • Curtis Granderson took another 0-fer at the plate. He's now 1 for 24 (.042) to start the year.
  • Jerry Blevins surrendered his first hit as a Met, an infield single to Dee Gordon in the ninth. Opposing batters had been 0 for 21 against him dating back to last year.

Matthew Cerrone: Yikes! It was a rough night for Matz, which is putting it lightly. He is the story. He looked good in the first inning, despite not pitching for 10 days. But, as his pitch count went up, he couldn't locate the strike zone. And, when he did throw strikes, he lost no out pitch and the Marlins hit him hard. He needs to put this behind him, know he's about to be a normal schedule, and get back to what he does best in his next start....

The Mets lost, 5-4, in Game 1 of the World Series. They took a 4-3 lead into the ninth inning, but Jeurys Familia allowed a game-tying solo home run to Alex Gordon. In the 14th inning, David Wright's throwing error set up Eric Hosmer's walk-off sacrifice fly.
