The Marlins have designated lefty Hunter Cervenka for assignment, per a club announcement. His roster spot was needed to make way for the team’s just-announced trade.
Cervenka, who’ll soon turn 28, came over in an August 2016 swap with the Braves but has seen fairly minimal MLB action in Miami. He took the ball only five times in the majors in 2017, spending most of the year at the Triple-A level. There, Cervenka rank up a 4.58 ERA with 8.9 K/9 and 5.9 BB/9 over 39 1/3 innings.
