The Miami Marlins are dealing with an injury to a key player, but continue to win series after series. The Fish also made a couple of roster moves today. Three relief pitchers were shuffled around, so let's take a look at what was actually done, and who was affected. Don't forget that tonight at 7:30 PM the Miami Marlins face the Atlanta Braves at Atlanta. It's game one of that series.

The Miami Marlins made roster moves involving three relief pitchers.

The first move saw the Miami Marlins optioned right hander George Soriano back down to the Minor Leagues. The 24 year old has only appeared in 3 games and 7.0 innings for The Fish this season. This also happened to be his debut season as well. He delivered a 2,57 ERA/3.33 FIP with 3.9 K/9 and 2.6 BB/9. The strikeout rate was subpar, but the walk rate was pretty decent. He has some strong strikeout numbers in the Minor Leagues, topping out at 13.5 this season. Unfortunately, he also had a matching walk rate as well.

The Fish designated fellow right hander Jeff Lindgren for assignment. The 26 year old has been abysmal for the Miami Marlins this season. He has a 7.20 ERA/5.13 FIP with 0.0 K/9 and 5.4 BB/9. The team is obviously not going to miss him, considering this poor performance. I'm not sure that any team will be interested in him, so he could end up back in the Minors. There's also a chance that he will be released, but he may be kept around for pitching depth. I should also add that he was a starting pitcher in the Minors.

Left handed relief pitcher Sean Nolin has been called up from the Minor Leagues. There is actually a chance that he receives some spot starts. Nolin is 33 years old and spent time with the Toronto Blue Jays (2013-2014), Oakland Athletics (2015) and the Washington Nationals (2021). He delivered an uninspiring 5.74 ERA/5.63 FIP with 5.4 K/9 and 4.0 BB/9 for hos career so far. We will see if Soriano gets another call-up this season, and how Nolin will do during his.

Next. A surprisingly strong position is.... dark
