Figgins signs Minor League deal

MIAMI — The Marlins have signed infielder Chone Figgins to a Minor League contract with an invitation to Spring Training.

Figgins, 35, spent the past three seasons with the Mariners. The veteran, who offers an option at third base, struggled the past two years. Last season, he batted .181 in 66 games.

Miami on Friday also outrighted outfielder Bryan Petersen to Triple-A New Orleans. Petersen also will be in Spring Training with the Marlins.

Miami has 74 players scheduled to participate in Spring Training, which begins with pitchers and catchers workouts on Tuesday.
