According to a report by CBS4 News partner The Miami Herald, four groups are “actively engaged” in talks to buy the team sometime this year.

These groups include both local and out-of-town investors.

The report goes on to say that the Marlins would like to reach a deal within the coming months, allowing MLB approval and the agreement’s details to be hammered out by the end of the year.

Miami opens the regular season at home April 11th vs. the Braves.
