Marlins Make an Offer to Russell Branyan

This just in.

OK, so it was in a little while ago. I'm in a meeting. According to MLB Trade Rumors, the Marlins have made an offer to Russell Branyan.

The Marlins offered a one-year deal to free agent first baseman Russell Branyan, reports ESPN's Jayson Stark. The offer contains a "low base and lots of incentives," and Branyan would have to pass rookies Gaby Sanchez and Logan Morrison on the depth chart for a starting job.

If he does sign, hopefully the plan would be to use him as a lefty off the bench, and not as the everyday first baseman.
