Marlins make roster moves
As noted in the earlier blog item, Zach Kroenke wasn’t expected to make the team. And on Monday, the Marlins returned the lefty to Yankees.
A Rule 5 claim in December, Kroenke now heads back to New York. The cost to bring him in a few months is $25,000. It would have been $50,000 had he made the Marlins.
In other moves made on Monday, right-hander Dallas Trahern was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans. Right-hander Chris Leroux was optioned to Double-A Jacksonville. Lefty Aaron Thompson was reassigned to Minor League camp.
