The Miami Marlins have agreed a one-year-deal with veteran infielder Rafael Furcal, according to Jon Heyman of

The deal, which is pending a physical, could well be a great coup for the Marlins despite Furcal having struggled with injury problems over the past five years, however he now looks set to line up for the Marlins. 

It had been suggested that the Marlins were looking at filling the short-term stopgap with the veteran and they will now be hoping he stays injury free. 

Despite being a shortstop throughout the majority of his career, he now looks set to move into second base for the Marlins. 

As he's in the twilight years of his career, a move into second base could prove to be a major success for him and the Marlins. 

The Marlins may now look to add more veterans to their team as they look to improve their options in the third base and on the mound.
