News: Dunn signed a two-year, $5.8 million contract to avoid arbitration, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports.
Impact: Dunn was an effective reliever for Miami in 2013 and 2014, but his win total (10) last season was incredibly fluky, and he only has four career saves. While he doesn't appear to be next in line for saves in the event of a Steve Cishek injury, Dunn has shown an ability to retire both left-handed and right-handed batters. If the Miami bullpen is unusually injury-plagued, Dunn could thus be an option to close games.

News: Dunn has agreed to a $5.8 million, two-year contract with the Miami Marlins and will avoid arbitration. The left-hander's sports agency tweeted an announcement of the deal Sunday, and the Marlins confirmed an agreement.
Impact: Dunn went 10-6 with a 3.16 ERA in 57 innings for Miami last year, all in relief. This season will be his fifth with the Marlins, and he has a career ERA of 3.36.
