Marlins signed 1B Xavier Scruggs to a minor league contract.
Scruggs was a member of the Cardinals organization during the 2015 MLB season. He hit for a .262 average over 43 plate appearances this past season. He is still just 28 years old and has shown flashes of brillance in his short time at the big league level. He will likely start the season in the minors but will be a nice organizational-depth piece for the Marlins. Analysis: Drew Phelps
