So far this off-season, the Marlins have committed nearly $200 million to just three players. That’s a lot of money for a team that has never had a payroll north of $60 million in one season.
In fact, even if the Marlins don’t spend another dime this off-season, their payroll for the 2012 season is already projected to be $109 million*. And that will go up considerable if the Marlins sign Prince Fielder.

Payroll was projected using salaries available at Cot’s Contracts, and the projected arbitration salaries via MLBTradeRumors.com
