Jose Veras Designated For Assignment

The Marlins designated reliever Jose Veras for assignment, reports Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald.  The Marlins decided they'd seen enough of Veras after four appearances.  He allowed eight runs in 4.6 innings.  Veras, 30, posted a 5.19 ERA, 7.2 K/9, and 5.0 BB/9 in 50.3 innings last year for the Yankees and Indians.  He was designated for assignment twice during the season, and non-tendered by the Tribe in December.

The Marlins have already discarded all of their scrap heap relief pickups: Veras, Mike MacDougal, Seth McClung, and Derrick Turnbow.
