Nunez, Mujica reach agreement

The Marlins have reached agreement on one-year contracts with relievers Leo Nunez and Edward Mujica. Both right-handers avoid arbitration.

Nunez will head into Spring Training as the frontrunner to be Florida’s closer. Last year, he converted 30 of 38 save opportunities.

Nunez will earn $3.65 million, plus performing bonuses.

In two seasons with the Marlins, Nunez has saved 56 games. In 2010, the right-hander appeared in 68 games, and he logged 65 innings.

Mujica, arbitration eligible for the first time, was acquired from the Padres in the Cameron Maybin deal.
