ORLANDO, FLA. (AP) - A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that All-Star catcher John Buck and the Florida Marlins are close to agreement on an $18 million, three-year contract.

The person spoke Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the deal was not yet final. The person said the sides were working to wrap it up.

Buck was a first-time All-Star this year, when he hit .281 with 20 homers and 66 RBIs for the Toronto Blue Jays.
