Marlins To Sign Matt Diaz

The Marlins have agreed to a minor league deal with outfielder Matt Diaz, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today (on Twitter). Diaz signed a minor league deal with the Yankees this offseason but was released last week. He is represented by Reynolds Sports Management.

Diaz, 35, hit .222/.280/.333 in 51 games for the Braves last season, but owns a much more respectable .770 career OPS. He's tattooed left-handed pitching throughout his 10-year career, knocking them around to the tune of a .324/.364/.498 line. Though he's primarily played left field throughout his career, he does have extensive experience in right field as well.
