Nationals sent INF Greg Dobbs outright to Triple-A Syracuse.

Dobbs was designated for assignment by the Nats on June 25 and made it through waivers unclaimed. The 36-year-old is a .261/.306/.386 career hitter in the majors.

Nationals designated INF Greg Dobbs for assignment.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of Taylor Hill. Dobbs has hit just .171/.186/.195 over 43 plate appearances this season for the Marlins and Nats. He should be able to catch on with a minor league deal somewhere.

Nationals purchased the contract of INF Greg Dobbs from Triple-A Syracuse.

Dobbs was just inked to a minor league deal earlier this week. The veteran left-handed swinger will give the Nats another option at first base with Adam LaRoche (quad) out.

Nationals signed INF Greg Dobbs to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Syracuse.

Dobbs was released by the Marlins last week after managing just one hit in 15 games. The 35-year-old has a .257/.304/.343 batting line over his last 622 major league plate appearances and is doubtful to make an impact in Washington. He has an early-June opt-out date.

Marlins released INF Greg Dobbs.

Dobbs was removed from the Marlins' 40-man roster at the end of April and passed through waivers. He was given a one-year, $1.7 million extension last September and the Fish will have to eat the rest of that money.

Marlins designated INF Greg Dobbs for assignment.

For some reason, the Marlins decided to give Dobbs a one-year, $1.7 million extension last September, but now they are ready to turn the page. The 35-year-old is hitting .220/.293/.288 batting line over 280 plate appearances dating back to the start of last season. Ed Lucas has been activated from the disabled list and will take his place on the active roster.

Greg Dobbs (quad) is back in the Marlins' lineup Wednesday.

Dobbs hasn't played in a Grapefruit League game since March 11 due to a strained left quad, but he's finally 100 percent. The 35-year-old should be on the Marlins' bench on Opening Day.

Marlins signed INF Greg Dobbs to a one-year, $1.7 million contract extension.

Word of the agreement was first reported by Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. Dobbs, 35, is hitting just .229 with a brutal .605 OPS in 266 plate appearances this season and doesn't play great defense. It's not a deal that carries much risk, but $1.7 million is probably still an overpay for the unproductive corner infielder.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins have reached an agreement with Greg Dobbs.

The financial details are not yet available. Dobbs, who was set to become a free agent this November, is batting .229/.305/.301 with two home runs and 22 RBI in 112 games this season for Miami while playing primarily at first base. He turned 35 years old in July.

Greg Dobbs grounded out to shortstop as a pinch-hitter in Monday's loss to the Brewers.

Dobbs picked up more at-bats than expected earlier this season due to injuries, but he hasn't drawn a start in over a week. The veteran is hitting a weak .215/.286/.279 through 172 at-bats.

Greg Dobbs (calf) is on track to return to the Marlins' lineup on Saturday.

Dobbs has been sidelined over the past few days due to a sore calf, but it's not a major concern. Logan Morrison and Placido Polanco both carry health questions, so the 34-year-old should be an active bench player for the Marlins again this season.

Greg Dobbs swatted a solo home run on Friday, helping to lead the Marlins to a 4-0 victory over the Reds.

He finished the night 2-for-4. His solo shot off Bronson Arroyo in the fourth inning increased the Marlins’ lead to 3-0. He’s been drawing fairly regular starts in recent weeks, and is hitting a very respectable .307/.326/.411 with five homers and 37 RBI through 280 at-bats.

Greg Dobbs has been playing through a strained oblique.

Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald writes that Dobbs has been in "considerable pain," particularly when he throws. But, the utility man doesn't plan on going on the disabled list. "Until I physically can’t play or physically feel I can’t help this team, I’ll cross that bridge,’’ Dobbs said. "But I haven’t got to that point yet, nor do I envision that happening."

Greg Dobbs went 3-for-4 and homered Wednesday against the Phillies.

He also committed his third error in three days at third base, which is a big reason why the Marlins prefer to use him as a pinch-hitter. Dobbs is batting .300 with 29 RBI in 213 at-bats for the season, but he's simply playing too much right now.
