Pinto designated, Wood recalled

After the Marlins lost 6-3 to the Rangers on Wednesday night, the Marlins designated left-handed reliever Renyel Pinto.

Right-hander Tim Wood has been recalled from Triple-A New Orleans.

Pinto appeared in the ninth inning on Wednesday, and he yielded a home run to Josh Hamilton.

In 20 games this season, Pinto posted a 2.70 ERA with 16 strikeouts and nine walks.

He went on the disabled list on May 27 with a left hip strain, and he was reinstated on Sunday afternoon.

With Pinto designated, Taylor Tankersley is the lone lefty in the bullpen.
