The Marlins have selected the contract of right-hander Luis Madero, Christina de Nicola of MLB.com was among those to relay. To create space on the 40-man roster, infielder José Devers has been transferred from the 10-day to the 60-day injured list.
Madero has bounced on and off the 40-man roster a couple times this year, making his first two major league appearances in the process. He has spent the majority of the season with Triple-A Jacksonville, working mostly as a starting pitcher. The 24-year-old has tossed 29 innings over eight appearances (including six starts) with the Jumbo Shrimp, working to a strong 3.41 ERA. Madero has struck out an above-average 25.6% of batters faced against an average 9.8% walk percentage.
Devers was originally placed on the IL with a right shoulder impingement on June 14. Today’s transfer rules him out for sixty days from that time, so the young infielder won’t be back in the big leagues until at least mid-August. Devers has picked up his first 46 MLB plate appearances this year.
This is a great move. Madero really deserves this. I’ve been following his career since I read this article.
Well, I guess we’re in tank the season mode now. Might as well make Anthony Bass a SP now just to make sure.
You had to know it would be a long season when Bass was made the team closer out of spring. Jay’s let em go for a reason
Yeah, I imagine it was for that labial growth problem he has. I really feel sorry for our grounds crew and laundry team. Grounds crew keeps having to change the dirt on the mound every time he pitches and Bass’ track from the bullpen to the mound and to the showers, because of all the urine that is at all; those locations. And the laundry team keeps having to get those yellow stains out of his pants. And sadly the Marlins aren’t letting them buy a season-long supply of adult diapers for Bass…and some of the other bullpen pieces.
