Veteran right-hander Anthony Bass signed a two-year contract with the Miami Marlins, the team announced Thursday.

Financial terms were not disclosed by the Marlins, however the deal includes a team option for 2023. MLB Network reported last Friday that the contract was for $5 million guaranteed plus incentives.

Bass, who led the Toronto Blue Jays with seven saves in 2020, is expected to compete for Miami’s closer role.
