The Marlins signed first baseman Doug Mientkiewicz to a minor league deal, according to Baseball America's Matt Eddy. Mientkiewicz didn't play much in '09, as he went down for shoulder surgery in April.
The Dodgers re-signed Mientkiewicz to a minor league deal in December of last year. He sought his release after being told he wouldn't make the team, and the Dodgers waited a week before granting it. Mientkiewicz declined a chance to coach for Joe Torre, and later passed on Bret Boone's recruiting efforts for his independent league club.
