Reports: Marlins sign Diaz to minor league deal

The SportsXchange

Outfielder Matt Diaz, who was released by the New York Yankees last week, agreed to a minor league contract with the Miami Marlins, multiple media outlets reported Monday.

Diaz will have a shot at making Miami's Opening Day roster if he passes a physical exam Tuesday.

He went 6-for-30 (.200) with no extra-base hits for New York this spring.

Diaz, 35, hit .222 with two homers for the Atlanta Braves last year.
