Reports: Marlins sign C Buck to three-year deal
The Marlins are reportedly finalizing a three-year deal with free-agent catcher John Buck, according to reports.
FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal first reported via Twitter on Tuesday afternoon that the Marlins were “close to signing” Buck to a three-year contract, and SI.com’s Jon Heyman confirmed via Twitter that the two siders were nearing a deal.
According to The South Florida Sun-Sentinel, the deal is worth between $15 million and $20 million.
Buck’s agent, Sam Levinson, could not immediately be reached, and a Marlins spokesman said he had not heard about a potential deal.
