Strickland back in big leagues

For the first time since 2005, Scott Strickland is back in the big leagues.

The 34-year-old right-hander officially had his contract selected on Friday, and he now joins a Marlins bullpen looking for consistency.

Strickland was promoted from Triple-A New Orleans, where he appeared in 14 games and was 3-0 with a 1.72 ERA.

Strickland was added to replace Clay Hensley, who was placed on the disabled list with a left neck strain.

The last time Strickland was in the big leagues was with the Astros in 2005, where he appeared in five games.

The right-hander broke in with the Montreal Expos in 1999, and he has appeared in parts of six MLB seasons.

Strickland was a non-roster invitee with the Marlins in Spring Training, and he opened the year in New Orleans.
