Marlins option Carroll
After losing a tough 6-4 decision to the Dodgers at Land Shark Stadium, the Marlins announced backup outfielder Brett Carroll is being optioned to Triple-A New Orleans.
On Saturday, the team will fill Carroll’s spot by reinstating left-hander Andrew Miller from the disabled list. Miller, who went on the disabled list on April 20 with a right oblique strain, will get the starting nod against the Dodgers.
Carroll has been a defensive replacement, and he’s made several big catches and throws this season. But with the Marlins bullpen being heavily used in recent weeks, the team has opted to carry 13 pitchers and 12 position players.
