Rumored Red Sox Target Dan Uggla Agrees With Marlins MIAMI — The Florida Marlins spent
some more money, agreeing to a $7.8 million, one-year contract with
second baseman Dan Uggla.

The frugal Marlins, under pressure
from the players’ association, agreed last week to increase their
payroll from last year’s $37.5 million, the major league low. Two days
later, they agreed to a $39 million, four-year contract with pitcher
Josh Johnson, a deal the team still has not officially announced,

Uggla hit .243 with a Marlins-high 31
homers and 90 RBIs last year. He defeated Florida in arbitration last
winter, when he was awarded a salary of $5.35 million rather than the
team’s offer of $4.4 million.
