Greg Dobbs is a decent role player and has drawn interest from several teams as a free agent, including the Nationals.

Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports that re-signing Dobbs is the Marlins’ “main objective” right now and “the team is hoping to finalize a deal soon.”

And then Frisaro starts laying it on pretty thick with praise, writing that Dobbs “enjoyed a highly productive 2011″ and re-signing him “would cap a highly productive month of December for the Marlins.”

Meanwhile, in reality the “highly productive” Dobbs is a 33-year-old career-long bench player who hit .275 with a .311 on-base percentage and .389 slugging percentage in a career-high 439 plate appearances while posting a terrible 83/22 K/BB ratio.

He also hit .189 in 2010 and has batted a combined .251 with a .294 on-base percentage and .375 slugging percentage during the past three seasons. Dobbs will likely get a modest one-year deal.
