Marlins, Rodriguez agree to $10 million contract

MIAMI -- Ivan Rodriguez says he's healthy, and the Florida Marlins must agree. The cost-conscious Marlins expanded their payroll Wednesday by signing the 10-time All-Star catcher to a $10 million, one-year contract.

Rodriguez played 1,479 games with the Texas Rangers, hitting .303 with 215 homers and 829 RBIs and developing a reputation as one of the best catchers in baseball. The Rangers refused to offer the 31-year-old Rodriguez salary arbitration last December in a payroll-slashing moving. Rodriguez received a $2 million severance payment from the team as the end of his previous contract.
