Well-traveled reliever Anthony Bass agreed to terms Friday on a two-year deal with the Miami Marlins, multiple outlets reported.

MLB Network reported the deal was for $5 million guaranteed plus incentives and includes a third-year option.

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

The 33-year-old right-hander is 9-16 with 15 saves, a 4.32 ERA and 266 strikeouts in 373 innings over nine seasons with the San Diego Padres, Houston Astros, Texas Rangers, Chicago Cubs, Seattle Mariners and Blue Jays.
