The Marlins have signed Greg Dobbs to a two-year deal worth $3 million,'s Jon Heyman has learned.

Dobbs, 33, hit .275/.311/.389 with eight home runs and 49 RBI in 134 games and 439 plate appearances for the Marlins in 2011. A left-handed batter, Dobbs started 84 games for the Marlins at third base last season, another six in the outfield, three at first base and two as the DH. The Marlins should have a new third baseman in Hanley Ramirez, but Dobbs' experience makes him a valuable bench piece for Miami.
