Marlins Designate Henry Rodriguez For Assignment

The Marlins have designated right-hander Henry Rodriguez for assignment and optioned lefty Dan Jennings to Triple-A New Orleans, according to the Miami Herald’s Clark Spencer (on Twitter).¬†According to the club’s transactions page, right-hander Anthony DeSclafani‘s contract has been purchased from Double-A Jacksonville.

Rodriguez displayed what have become typical command problems for him in 2014, walking five batters in just 1 2/3 innings pitched for the Fish. He’s issued 107 free passes in 150 1/3 career innings at the big league level, offsetting an impressive strikeout rate (9.0 K/9) and strong velocity (he’s averaged 98 mph on his heater in his career).
