Richar signs Minor League deal

If Alfredo Amezaga opts to sign with another club, the Marlins have another possible all-purpose utility replacement.

The Marlins recently signed Danny Richar to a Minor League deal with an invitation to Spring Training. The 26-year-old is signed for a basic Minor League contract. He will make $12,000 a month if he is in the Minor Leagues, and $410,000 if he makes the big league club.

A natural middle infielder, Richar is versatile enough to also play third base and outfield.

In 2009, he appeared in seven games for the Reds, and he has 79 big league games of experience over three seasons. In 2007, he saw action in 56 games with the White Sox.
