Greg Dobbs, who set the Phillies' all-time single season record with 22 pinch hits in 2008, jumps ship to the rival Marlins.
Dobbs, who was non-tendered after the season after hitting just .196/.251/.331 in '10, spent four productive seasons with the Phillies as their primary pinch hitter, on-and-off third baseman and extremely on-and-off outfielder and first baseman. Completely lost at the plate, he was twice designated for assignment last season and graciously accepted his demotions to Lehigh Valley, where he hit .210. All told, he hit .261/.310/.427 with 29 homers and 130 RBIs in four seasons with the club, arriving in Philadelphia after he was claimed off waivers from the Mariners after the 2006 season. Dobbs received an invite to Marlins spring training, where he will compete for a job as Wes Helms' insurance policy.
