Marlins, Kelly reportedly reach Minor League deal

Don Kelly has found a new home.

The former Tiger has agreed to a Minor League contract with the Miami Marlins, according to multiple reports.

The Detroit Free Press was the first to report the deal, which includes an invitation to Spring Training, and has also confirmed the news.

"There were [talks with the Tigers]," Kelly said. "[It] wasn't an easy decision, but Miami was a better fit at this time."

Kelly, 34, spent the past six seasons with the Tigers and played at least 95 games in four of those years.

Kelly played first, third and outfield as a member of the Tigers last season and hit .245.
