MIAMI - A person familiar with the negotiations says third baseman Placido Polanco has agreed to terms with the Miami Marlins. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because the Marlins hadn't announced a deal. Polanco, 37, battled injuries this year and hit .257 with two home runs and 19 RBIs in 90 games with the Phillies. The 15-year veteran is a career .299 hitter with 103 homers. The deal solidifies the Marlins' lineup following an offseason payroll purge.

Suspended Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen's apology tour continued Wednesday, speaking to his players inside the Citizens Bank Park visitors' clubhouse before it was opened to reporters. Guillen arrived at the clubhouse just before 4 p.m. to tell his players he was sorry for saying he admired and loved Fidel Castro in an interview with Time magazine - a comment that angered Miami's Cuban American community. The team suspended Guillen for five games, beginning with Wednesday's game against the Phillies.

It was Elih Villanueva's major league debut, but the Phillies seemed intent on making it his finale. A suddenly electric offense scored eight runs against the 24-year-old Marlins righthander, six of them coming in the third inning as they cruised to an 8-1 victory in the first game of today's doubleheader. By the end of it, a grueling stretch of three games in 24 hours felt a lot more manageable, as the much-maligned Phillies offense gave Kyle Kendrick plenty of breathing room as he coasted through seven innings in just 88 pitches.

GREG DOBBS drove in a career-high five runs, including a solo homer, and Logan Morrison and John Buck each homered to lead the visiting Florida Marlins to a 11-2 win over the Washington Nationals last night. Dobbs drove in Florida's first run in the first on a groundout, scoring Omar Infante who had tripled. He added another run-scoring single in the seventh and two more on a single during Florida's five-run ninth inning. It was the second time this year the Marlins have scored at least 10 runs.

LoMo and Twitter At first Logan Morrison thought Twitter was, well, lame. He didn't exactly say "lame" - being 23 years old and a Dave Chappelle fan. But you get the idea. Now he's hooked and has more than 26,000 followers. Pretty awesome, considering he's less than halfway through his first full season in the major leagues and plays for the Florida Marlins. About Twitter, LoMo notes: "It's amazing how many people take you seriously. I don't take it seriously at all. " About LoMo on Twitter, Marlins team president David Samson notes: "I'm not a dinosaur.

FOR EVALUATORS of the Phillies' relief corps, Game 1 of yesterday's doubleheader presented the ultimate Rorschach test. Instead of an inkblot, you had Kyle Kendrick giving you everything you could have hoped for from a guy making his first start in 22 days, then leaving the final four innings and a one-run lead to the bullpen. What you make out of what happened next depends on your perspective. Or your psychology. Those of a certain extreme mind-set may look at the net result and see a huge positive.

Lots of missed chances and one mishandled popup led to a walkoff loss for the Washington Nationals last night in Miami. Washington's hitting with men on base went from bad to worse, and an error in the 10th inning by rightfielder Jayson Werth proved costly in a 3-2 loss to the Florida Marlins. The Nationals left 12 men on base, had another thrown out trying to score and finished 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position. Through four games they're batting .121 (4-for-33) in those situations.

Houston manager Brad Mills wants his players to focus on each game individually and not dwell on the mistakes they've made in past losses. The Astros seemed to follow that advice in a 7-1 victory over Florida yesterday, hardly resembling a team that dropped seven of its first eight. J.A. Happ pitched four-hit ball into the eighth inning and drove in two runs with a double, and the Astros tallied a season-high 16 hits, six for extra bases. Hunter Pence, Carlos Lee and Matt Downs also knocked in runs.

First base The Houston Astros chose outfielder Domingo Santana over three other Phillies minor-leaguers to complete the Hunter Pence trade. The other three names on their list: outfielders Jiwan James and Leandro Castro and pitcher Juan Sosa . All three are playing at single-A Clearwater. James, 22, went into Saturday hitting .269 with 24 doubles, six triples, four home runs, and 31 RBIs. Castro, also 22, has been on the disabled list since the middle of June.

After three weeks of inconsistent play and clubhouse controversy, it finally took an injury to centerfielder Jacoby Ellsbury to spur Boston's front office to action. Outfielder Marlon Byrd told ESPN on Saturday evening that he has been traded from the Chicago Cubs to Boston. With leftfielder Carl Crawford (wrist/elbow) and Ellsbury (shoulder) on the disabled list, the Red Sox are stunningly weak in the outfield. (If you watched Saturday's game against the Yankees, you saw that they are very thin in the bullpen, too)

NO ALGORITHM can predict what will happen when a hitter with the speed of Jose Reyes sends a weak chopper bounding through the infield grass. Instincts and muscle memory take over when the bat meets the ball: Placido Polanco charges in from the basepath, scoops up the bounce, and in one smooth motion snaps a throw in the direction his momentum is traveling. From start to finish, the play takes 4 or 5 seconds. The decisive moments take a fraction of that. A half step is all that separates comfort from trouble.

YOU GET HOME from a game like Wednesday night's, and you might talk about the two-run double by the 22-year-old rookie. You might talk about the heads-up baserunning by the new leadoff hitter. You might talk about the two runs scored by the new three-hole hitter. But you will not talk about Roy Halladay. At least not at first. And that's OK with him. When Halladay pitches, nights like Wednesday night, 7-1 victories that snap three-game losing streaks, are the expectation. At some point, though, some member of a future generation will ask you what it was like to watch Roy Halladay pitch.

BOBBY ABREU appears to be the odd man out in the Los Angeles Angels' lineup, but he says he's not willing to settle for a bench role. "I'm an every-day player. I can still be in the lineup for a major league team," Abreu, 37, told ESPNdeportesLosAngeles.com from his native Venezuela. "I will not be on the bench knowing that I can play. If the Angels don't have a position for me, then the best thing is to trade me. It would be the correct [thing] to do. I won't be able to do nothing sitting in the bench.

DALLAS - They were the Florida Marlins when the 2011 season ended, then became the Miami Marlins in November. Now it appears they want to be the Miami Heat. Like their NBA cousins, the Marlins are trying to gather a team of superstars in their effort to end the Phillies' divisional dominance and win a third World Series title. The fact that the Heat's quest for a championship came up short in the NBA Finals and everybody's favorite NFL dream team has crashed and burned right before the sore eyes of Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie has not deterred Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria.

The San Francisco Giants have claimed San Diego closer Heath Bell off waivers, four people with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on Wednesday. They spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because baseball rules forbid the public discussion of waiver cases. Whether the reigning World Series champions will actually acquire Bell from the division rival Padres is unclear. Once Bell is claimed, San Diego has 48 hours to decide whether to trade the three-time all-star, allow him to be claimed, or pull him back from waivers.
