Outfielder Curtis Granderson signed a minor-league contract to attend spring training with the Miami Marlins and compete for a spot on the 25-man roster.
Per multiple reports, Granderson would make $1.75 million if he makes the big league roster. The deal also includes incentives to push the value to $2 million for the 2019 season, Fancred’s Jon Heyman reported Tuesday.
Granderson turns 38 on March 16.
Granderson, who was a New York Yankees teammate of Marlins owner Derek Jeter, slashed .242/.351/.431 with 13 home runs and 22 doubles in 403 plate appearances in 2018. He started the season with the Toronto Blue Jays and finished with the Milwaukee Brewers.
Granderson has appeared in the playoffs each of the past four seasons. He also has played for the Detroit Tigers, New York Mets and Los Angeles Dodgers during his 15-year career.
