Miami Marlins Sign Greg Dobbs

According to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, the Miami Marlins and free-agent Greg Dobbs have agreed to terms on a two-year deal to retain the third baseman. Jon Heyman of CBS Sports confirmed the report, also adding the deal is worth $3 million.

It was reported last week the Marlins' top priority at the time was re-signing veteran Greg Dobbs, but it's hard to imagine the team didn't outbid themselves here.

Dobbs, 33, hit .275/.311/.389 with 8 homers in 439 plate appearances in his first season with the Marlins last year. The veteran was on a minor league deal, but his 2011 guaranteed him $3 million over the next two years. He'll serve as the team's backup third baseman, behind Hanley Ramirez.
