Marlins sign Don Kelly to a minor league deal


Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports that the Marlins have signed utilityman Don Kelly to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training.

Kelly, 35 in February, had been with the Tigers since 2009. A veteran of seven seasons in the majors, he owns a career .232/.296/.336 batting line with 23 home runs and 95 RBI in 1,189 plate appearances. Despite his offensive shortcomings, Kelly is quite versatile as he has experience at every position on the diamond, including pitcher and catcher.
