Chone Figgins will travel with the Dodgers on their trip to Australia.

Figgins is hitting just .171/.333/.200 this spring after not playing at all last season, but the Dodgers value his versatility. The 36-year-old has experience at six different positions.
Mar 16 - 2:15 PM

Chone Figgins went 2-for-2 with a run scored as the Dodgers and Padres played to a 3-3 tie in Cactus League play on Sunday.

Figgins also swiped his first base of the spring. He didn't start the game, entering as a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning and staying on as the designated hitter. His speed and versatility still make him a strong option to stick as a utility player on the Dodgers Opening Day roster.
Mar 2 - 6:02 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Saturday that Chone Figgins will work out at second base, third base and center field during the spring.

The Dodgers like the potential versatility that Figgins brings to the table, so provided he can hold his own with the bat during the spring, he has a strong chance of cracking the Opening Day roster in a utility role.

Dodgers signed INF Chone Figgins to a minor league contract.

The contract includes an invitation to major league spring training. While the 36-year-old was unable to crack the lowly Marlins roster out of spring training a season ago, his speed and defensive versatility could still make him a valuable bench option.
Jan 24 - 8:15 PM

Chone Figgins has agreed to a minor league deal with the Dodgers, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

The deal includes an invitation to spring training. The 36-year-old couldn't make the Marlins out of spring last season, a damning indictment if ever there was one, but Rosenthal suggests Figgins could break camp with the Dodgers in a utility role. Figgins last played in the majors with the Mariners in 2012, appearing in 66 games.

According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, the Red Sox attended Chone Figgins' workout last Friday.

The 35-year-old free agent took infield, outfield and batting practice and then ran the 60-yard dash in front of nine interested teams in Tampa, Florida. Figgins should land a non-guaranteed minor league contract soon. He did not play MLB-affiliated ball in 2013.
Jan 20 - 11:00 AM

Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports that the Dodgers were one of the nine teams in attendance for Chone Figgins' workout in Tampa on Friday.

Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti admits that he's curious as to what the 35-year-old infielder has to offer. He'll likely have to settle for a minor league contract, but is attracting enough interest that he should get an opportunity to make a comeback.
Jan 17 - 9:59 PM

Chone Figgins worked out in front of about 10 teams on Wednesday afternoon in Tampa, Florida.

Figgins took infield, outfield and batting practice, then ran the 60-yard dash in 6.5 seconds. The 35-year-old utilityman is expected to sign a minor league contract soon. He batted just .185/.249/.253 over his final two seasons (2011-2012) with the Mariners and did not play affiliated ball in 2013.
Jan 15 - 5:17 PM

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that Chone Figgins will work out for potentially interested teams this week.

Figgins wound up sitting out all of last season after being released by the Marlins late in spring training. He'll turn 36 in two weeks and batted a horrific .185/.249/.253 during his last two seasons with the Mariners before being released. Still, he shouldn't have trouble landing an invite to spring training.

Marlins released INF-OF Chone Figgins.

Figgins tallied no extra-base hits in 32 plate appearances this spring in the Grapefruit League. He signed a minor league contract with the Fish in February after the Mariners cut ties with him in November. The 35-year-old utilityman will try to latch on with a new team.

Chone Figgins went 4-for-4 as the Marlins' second baseman Sunday versus the Braves.

Figgins was 2-for-14 this spring before coming through with a big game today. His versatility is the key as he attempts to win a spot on Miami's bench.
Sun, Mar 10, 2013 04:20:00 PM

Chone Figgins went 0-for-2 with a walk on Thursday and is still hitless in 11 at-bats this spring.

The slow start doesn't bode well for Figgins' chances of making the Marlins. Still, his ability to play five positions could get him a bench spot.

Marlins signed INF/OF Chone Figgins to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Figgins was horrendous in his three years with the Mariners (.227/.302/.283 over 308 games), but he's at least landed in a good spot with the Marlins. The 35-year-old has mainly played left field, second base and third base in recent seasons, and Miami is currently slated to go with Juan Pierre, Donovan Solano and a broken down Placido Polanco at those positions. The potential for playing time is there, and he should at least offer a bit of speed if he finds himself in the lineup often.

Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com reports that the Phillies have "checked in" on Chone Figgins.

Morosi notes that the extent of their interest is unclear at this time. The Phillies don't have starters locked in at third base or left field, so it makes sense that they have some interest in Figgins. Whether or not they view him as a regular isn't known. Figgins was cut loose last month by the Mariners, who ate the remaining $8 million on his contract.
