The Marlins have agreed to sign outfielder Matt Diaz to a minor league contract.
The Marlins have agreed to sign outfielder Matt Diaz to a minor league contract, reports CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman. He was released by the Yankees a little more than a week ago.
Diaz, 35, went 6-for-30 (.200) with no extra-base hits for New York in camp before being cut loose. He hit .222 with two homers and a 65 OPS+ in 51 games for the Braves last season while battling thumb problems that required surgery.
With Juan Pierre, Justin Ruggiano and Giancarlo Stanton expected to start in the Miami outfield, Diaz joins a competition for a bench spot that includes Gorkys Hernandez, Austin Kearns and former Rookie of the Year Chris Coghlan.
