Marlins Rumors: Miami Signs INF Scott Sizemore to a minor league deal

The Miami Marlins have acquired a potential low-risk, high-reward option for their infield by signing Scott Sizemore to a minor league contract on Friday.

Here's CBS Sports' Jon Heyman with the report:

Sizemore turns 30 years old in April and has appeared in only eight games at the MLB level since the end of the 2011 season.

He missed all of 2012 after tearing the ACL in his left knee and was able to see action in just two games in 2013 before re-tearing that same ligament. The Yankees promoted Sizemore up for six games this past season, but he spent the majority of 2014 at Triple-A, posting a .266/.329/.433 slash line with seven home runs and 41 RBI over 81 games.

The Marlins will give Sizemore a look in spring training in all likelihood, but likely won't commit one way or the other until they get a full look at him.
