Marlins Sign Scott Proctor

The Marlins are expected to sign former Dodgers right-hander Scott Proctor to bolster a bullpen that has lost several veterans.

Proctor agreed to a one-year contract for $750,000, with another $250,000 in incentives, according to an industry source. But the deal is contingent on Proctor passing a physical, and he had elbow problems last season.

Proctor missed two months with elbow tendinitis in 2008 and underwent successful surgery in October to repair a tear in the flexor tendon. He is expected to be ready by spring training.

Proctor, who turns 32 on Friday, was 2-0 with a 6.05 ERA in 41 games for the Dodgers last season. He allowed 65 base-runners (41 hits, 24 walks) in 38 2/3 innings but struck out 46.

Proctor was more effective in the two previous seasons. He led the American League with 83 appearances for the Yankees in 2006, finishing 6-4 with a 3.52 ERA. He also pitched in 83 games for the Yankees and Dodgers in 2007, finishing 5-5 with a 3.65 ERA.

Could be a good signing, He brings a veteran presence to the bullpen. And also he could also rejuvenate his career. He'll be a decent Middle reliever.
