The Marlins signed Chad Tracy, according to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro. With Chris Coghlan's season in jeopardy and Jorge Cantu now on the Rangers, Tracy will provide organizational depth for the Marlins. Tracy was an impact player for Arizona in 2005-06, surpassing 60 extra base hits both seasons, but is now a role player who can play both first and third.
The 30-year-old hit .250/.327/.295 with the Cubs this year before they designated him for assignment and released him. The Yankees signed Tracy and stashed him in the minors, but he opted out of his contract less than a month after signing it.
