Miami Marlins sign reliever Jon Rauch

Not only did the Marlins add depth to their bullpen on Tuesday, they also added height, signing 6-11 reliever Jon Rauch to a one-year, $1 million contract. To make room on the 40-man roster, outfielder Bryan Petersen was designated for assignment.

The 34-year-old right-hander is a veteran of 10 major-league seasons with six teams. Rauch spent last season with the Mets, going 3-7 with four saves and a 3.59 ERA in 73 appearances. Despite his towering presence, Rauch is not a big strikeout guy. He struck out just 42 (against 12 walks) in 57 2/3 innings.

Rauch has a career mark of 42-38 with a 3.80 ERA.
