West recalled, Ayala optioned
No real surprise as to who will be Florida’s starting pitcher on Saturday night in Philadelphia.
As expected, Sean West is being recalled from Double-A Jacksonville. The 23-year-old, who was optioned on July 11, will be making his 11th start at the big league level. The 6-foot-8 lefty is 3-4 with a 4.91 ERA with the Marlins.
At Double-A, West is 7-3 with a 4.78 ERA in 12 games, with 11 starts.
To make room on the roster, reliever Luis Ayala was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans. Ayala has appeared in nine games with the Marlins, and in 7 1/3 innings, he has yielded seven runs on eight hits.
