Green agrees to Minor League deal

MIAMI — The Marlins have added a veteran candidate to compete for their utility role.

Nick Green, who was with the organization in 2012, has agreed to a Minor League deal with an invitation to Spring Training. The 34-year-old will have an excellent chance to make the team as a backup middle infielder.

A year ago, Green joined the Marlins in a similar situation. He signed a Minor League deal with an invitation to camp, but he opened the season at Triple-A New Orleans.

Green batted .344 in 63 games for New Orleans last year, and he appeared in seven games with the Marlins. He suffered a left thumb injury with Miami, but he is fully recovered for the start of Spring Training.

The Marlins have a need for middle backup middle infielders.

Green broke in with the Braves in 2004, and he has played in parts of seven big league seasons.
