Garrett Jones is working on a contract with the Miami Marlins, a source familiar with the negotiations said Friday.
The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported that the contract will be for two years and $7.5 million.
 
The Pirates non-tendered Jones, 32, who hit .233 with a .289 on-base percentage and 15 home runs this past season. Jones was in his third season of arbitration eligibility and would have received a raise from his $4.5 million salary in 2013. He will provide the Marlins with power, but remains a liability against left-handed pitching.

Fox Sports and Yahoo previously reported on the negotiations.
