Marlins Release Scott Proctor, Dave Davidson

The Marlins released pitchers Scott Proctor and Dave Davidson, according to Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Proctor, 33 in January, was non-tendered by the Dodgers in December of last year.  He agreed to a $750K deal with the Marlins in January, but was not able to return from flexor tendon surgery as expected.  In May, he decided to undergo Tommy John surgery.  Proctor's best year was 2006, when he posted a 3.52 ERA in 102.3 relief innings for the Yankees.

Davidson, 26 in April, was claimed off waivers from the Pirates in April but designated for assignment by the Fish in May.  The southpaw worked only 10.6 innings for the Marlins' Triple A club.  A June waiver claim of Davidson by Baltmore was voided due to a shoulder injury.  Davidson found his way to the big league 60-day DL, earning a few extra bucks in the process.  Poor guy earned it – Fredi Gonzalez had him throw 52 pitches in his lone big league inning.
