Marlins roster moves
JUPITER, Fla. — The Marlins made four roster moves on Sunday morning, reducing their number in camp down to 37.
Pitcher Elih Villanueva, outfielder Tim Torres, outfielder John Raynor and catcher Clint Sammons were reassigned to Minor League camp.
Villanueva made a strong impression in his first big league camp, and he will be in Triple-A New Orleans’ rotation.
In 13 Grapefruit League innings, the right-hander gave up two runs, and he struck out seven while walking three.
“I’ve been very impressed with Elih,” manager Edwin Rodriguez said. “He made a very good impression with everybody here. He’s going to be in the big leagues for a long time.”
