Aaron Rowand signs with Marlins
The 34-year-old Rowand hit .233 with four homers in 108 games for San Francisco last season. His best year was in 2007, when he hit .309 with 27 homers and 89 RBIs as an All-Star for Philadelphia.
If Rowand is added to the 40-man roster, he'll receive the major league minimum $480,000, which would be offset from the $12 million owed in the final season of $60 million, five-year deal the Giants released him from in September.
