Marlins sign John Maine

Miami has added the veteran right-hander on a minor-league deal.

The Miami Marlins have signed veteran right-hander John Maine to a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training, reports Joe Frisaro of MLB.com:

John Maine, who hasn't pitched in the big leagues in two years, will get a chance to revive his career with the Marlins, who have signed the 31-year-old to a Minor League contract with an invitation to Spring Training.

Maine last appeared at the big-league level with the Mets in 2010. The right-hander put together three pretty successful seasons as a starter for the club from 2006-2008 -- posting a 3.93 ERA across 72 starts -- but things went quickly downhill in 2009 as arm troubles surfaced. After missing half of the 2009 season with arm fatigue, Maine struggled out of the gate in 2010 and went down with a season-ending shoulder injury -- which required debridement surgery -- by late May.

Maine was picked up the next season on a minor-league deal with the Colorado Rockies but failed to regain his old form, posting a 7.43 ERA and 7.2 BB/9 rate in 46 innings for the club's Triple-A affiliate. The tall right-hander moved on to the Yankees' Triple-A squad this past season and had a bit more success, putting up a 4.97 ERA, 3.5 BB/9 rate and 7.5 K/9 rate in 79⅔ innings.
