In case you missed it as reported by our own Barry Jackson.... The Marlins are re-signing infielder/pinch-hitter Greg Dobbs who was due to become a free agent. He said a deal was struck between his agent and owner Jeffrey Loria. Dobbs whose two-year $3 million contract is expiring is batting .229 this season but hit .275 and .285 in his previous two years with the Marlins. Dobbs’ signing leaves Placido Polanco pitcher Chad Qualls (who got the win Wednesday) and outfielders Juan Pierre and Austin Kearns as the Marlins’ free agents. Kearns has missed most of the season because of family health issues. Dobbs catcher Jeff Mathis (due $1.5 million in 2014) and pitcher Jacob Turner ($1 million team option) are now under contract for next season and everyone else is under team control for 2014. The arbitration eligible Marlins are outfielder Giancarlo Stanton who could see his salary jump from $537000 to between $6 million and $8 million first baseman Logan Morrison infielder/outfielder Chris Coghlan outfielder Justin Ruggiano and pitchers Ryan Webb Mike Dunn and Kevin Slowey.
