Marlins sign Kotchman to minor-league deal

The SportsXchange

The Miami Marlins have signed first baseman Casey Kotchman to a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to spring training, the team announced Friday.

This may be an indication that Logan Morrison may not be ready to return for the start of the season following offseason knee surgery.

"I don't know if you want to call it insurance but, yeah, we have some concern that Lomo's not going to be ready," Marlins president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest told the Miami Herald.

Kotchman is good fielder who hit .229 with 12 home runs for Cleveland last season.
