Marlins Rumors: Greg Dobbs Is 'Top Priority' For Miami

It's been a pretty wild offseason in Miami. The Marlins are moving to South Beach for next season, and they're bringing some pretty impressive talents along with them. Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle and Heath Bell have all already agreed to usher in a new era of baseball in Florida, so it appears that the Marlins have lowered their sights to landing some less important players now.

According to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com, Miami has made re-signing utility infielder Greg Dobbs the team's "top priority" at the moment. Such a move would give the Marlins some additional depth at third base as well as a solid veteran presence that Frisaro mentions in his article.

Dobbs, 33, has spent time in the majors with the Marlins, Phillies and Mariners since hitting the big stage in 2004. He was a key part of Philadelphia's bench in 2007 and 2008, but he signed a minor league deal to join the Marlins last year. He ended up seeing more playing time in 2011 than he's ever seen before, posting a .275/.311/.389 line over 439 plate appearances.
