In addition to signing utility man Nick Green yesterday the Marlins also inked reliever Michael Wuertz to a minor-league deal.

Wuertz missed most of 2011 and all of 2012 while injured, but before that the right-hander was one of the more underrated setup man around with a 3.45 ERA and 412 strikeouts in 381 innings from 2004-2010.

His deal includes an invitation to spring training and Wuertz will try to win a middle relief job at age 34.
