After falling short in their quest to sign Aroldis Chapman, the Marlins reportedly made a “monster offer” to Jansen for five years and more than $80 million. The Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Dodgers also are in the mix for the All-Star right-hander, who has 127 saves over the last three seasons.
Ziegler, 37, split last season between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Boston Red Sox, posting a combined 22 saves with a 2.25 ERA. Tazawa, 30, pitched in 53 games for the Red Sox, striking out 54 batters in 49 2/3 innings.
If Jansen passes on South Beach, the Marlins already have an All-Star closer in A.J. Ramos, who saved 40 games last season.
