The Marlins' latest payroll purge received final approval Monday, Nov. 19, 2012, from Commissioner Bud Selig's office. In a conference call, team president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest confirmed the trade was necessary because Loria wanted to pare payroll. Reyes, who is due a guaranteed salary of $96 million, was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays. (AP Photo/LM Otero, File)
