The Marlins may turn over only a fourth-round pick to the Mets if Albert Pujols signs with Miami.

That's because Miami's first-round pick is protected at ninth overall, the second-round pick would go to St. Louis for losing Pujols and the third-round pick is blocked because San Diego lost Heath Bell to the Marlins.

If Pujols does not become a Marlin, the Mets get Miami's third-round pick (ninth in round).

Either way, the Mets get a sandwich pick between the first and second rounds.

Read the previous explanation of why the Mets get no better than Miami's third-round pick here.
