The Miami Marlins have upped their offer to free-agent first baseman Albert Pujols to 10 years, ESPN reported.
It wasn't clear how much money was involved and whether the Marlins would be willing to give Pujols a no-trade clause, which the club normally refuses to do as a matter of policy.
The Marlins had offered the three-time National League most valuable player a nine-year deal that could be worth about $200 million.
