The Miami Marlins have signed Curtis Granderson to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. If he makes the team he’ll make $1.75 million in 2019, with incentives that could bump it up to $2 million.

Granderson, who will turn 38 during spring training, spent last season with the Blue Jays and Brewers, hitting .242/.351/.431 with 13 home runs and 38 RBI in 403 plate appearances. That was pretty useful, mostly because John Gibbons and Craig Counsell used him almost exclusively against right-handed pitchers. As such, figure he’ll be a platoon outfielder in Miami as well.
