Veteran outfielder Curtis Granderson agreed to a minor league deal with the Miami Marlins on Tuesday, and will report spring training later this month.

If the 37-year-old Granderson makes the 40-man roster, he will earn a one-year contract that pays him $1.75 million and carries an additional $250,000 in incentives for things like number of at-bats.

A three-time All-Star, Granderson has spent 15 years in the major leagues, batting .252/.340/.470 with 332 home runs, 903 RBI and 153 stolen bases.

On three separate occasions (2007, 2011 and 2015), Granderson has finished in the top 20 of MVP voting, while also earning a Silver Slugger Award in 2011.

With the Marlins, Granderson reunites with team CEO Derek Jeter, who he spent four years playing alongside in the Bronx.

In 2018, Granderson spent time with both the Toronto Blue Jays and Milwaukee Brewers.
