Marlins agree to deal with catcher Olivo
The Marlins have agreed to a contract with catcher Miguel Olivo, pending a physical.

MLB.com's Joe Frisaro first suggested the potential deal on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, the Reds decided Olivo would not be on their Opening Day roster. Olivo, a non-roster invitee, was offered a $100,000 retention bonus to go to Triple-A Louisville, but opted to test the market.
