MIAMI (AP) - Suspended infielder Miguel Tejada has signed a minor league contract with the Miami Marlins.
Tejada is serving a 105-game suspension he began last year for testing positive for an amphetamine.
He would be eligible to play in the Marlins' 65th game, which would be June 10 at Texas if they don't have any other games rained out and postponed until after that date. He could appear in minor league games at Double-A or lower beginning May 31.
Tejada was with the Kansas City Royals last year when he drew one of the longest penalties handed down by Major League Baseball. The six-time All-Star was the AL MVP in 2002.
The Marlins also released veteran reliever Carlos Marmol on Monday. He had been designated for assignment after struggling in 15 games.
