Marlins claim reliever
Adding some depth to their Minor League system, the Marlins on Friday announced they’ve claimed lefty reliever Dave Davidson from the Pirates.
The 25-year-old has been optioned to Triple-A New Orleans. After spending last year in Double-A Altoona, Davidson made three appearances for Triple-A Indianapolis.
“He’s got a good arm, and he’s got options,” Marlins president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest said.
Throwing strikes consistently has beena challenge for Davidson. His raw talent was enough for the Marlins to feel comfortable taking a chance on him.
