Marlins Sign Matt Downs

The Marlins have signed second baseman Matt Downs to a minor league deal, according to Matt Eddy of Baseball America (on Twitter).  MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reported late last week that Downs was close to a deal with Miami and that it would include an invite to Spring Training.

Downs, 28, hit .202/.253/.371 with eight homers in 191 plate appearances for Houston in 2012.  The year prior, he posted a .276/.347/.518 slash line with ten homers in 222 plate appearances for the Astros.  Downs also has experience playing first base, shortstop, third base, and the corner outfield spots.
