Marlins Roster Moves – MLB Trade Rumors

The Marlins made a number of roster moves today, including moving All-Stars Jazz Chisholm Jr. to the 60-day injured list. Anthony Bender and: Cody Poteet were also moved to the 60-day injured list. Those moves cleared 40-man roster spots for: Williams Astudillo, Jeff Brighamand: Huascar Brazoban, who were all added to the active roster. To create those spots on the active roster, Brian Anderson: was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left shoulder strain, while: Max Meyer and: Tommy Nance were both placed on the 15-day injured list, per Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald (via Twitter:).

The Chisolm move is the most noteworthy (if expected) move of the bunch. The All-Star was: recently diagnosed: with a stress fracture in his back. The Marlins hope he can return by the end of the season, although that is definitely in doubt.

It’s equally disappointing to see Meyer make a quick trip to the injured list after just two big league starts. The 23-year-old surrendered five earned runs in seven innings while striking out six and walking two.

Nance, a 31-year-old reliever, joins Meyer on the injured list. The former Cub has a 5.76 ERA/3.28 FIP in 19 outings covering 25 innings this season for the Marlins. The power righty misses a fair amount of bats, but struggled at times with his command. For the year, he has struck out a robust 29.9 percent of opponents, but he has also walked 11.1 percent of opposing hitters, a number that needs to come down in order for him to become an effective late-inning arm.

More to come…
