Curtis Granderson Signs Minor League Contract With The Marlins

According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network:

Outfielder Curtis Granderson has signed a Minor League contract with the Marlins, which includes an invitation to MLB spring training. He has reached the postseason eight times with five different teams, including four years in a row.

MLB insider Steve Adams gives us further breakdown analysis on the Grandy man, who has dealt with his fair share of injuries:

After a pair of 40-homer campaigns from 2011-12, Granderson was hit by a pitch in his first Spring Training plate appearance in 2013. X-rays would reveal a fractured forearm that wound up causing the Grandy Man to sit out the first six weeks of the year. As if that wasn't enough poor luck for the former Tiger, he was struck in the left hand by a pitch from Rays reliever Cesar Ramos on May 24 in just his eighth game of the season. Granderson stayed in the game briefly, but that would be his last contest until Aug. 2, as he had suffered a broken metacarpal that required surgery. 

The first thing that comes to mind with Granderson is power. After averaging 24 homers per season from 2006-10, Granderson exploded with a 41-homer campaign in his second season with the Yankees. He followed that up with 43 long balls in 2012.
