First wave of Marlins’ cuts
JUPITER, Fla. — The first wave of cuts came at Marlins’ camp on Friday morning, and 11 players were told they will not be making the Opening Day roster.
Most of the moves were expected.
Right-handed reliever Michael Wuertz was released.
Lefty Scott Maine was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans. Right-hander Arquimendes Caminero, perhaps the hardest-thrower in the organization, and third baseman Zack Cox were optioned to Double-A Jacksonville.
Michael Brady (RHP), Adam Conley (LHP), Brian Flynn (LHP), Raudel Lazo (LHP), Danny Black (INF), Derek Dietrich (INF) and Kevin Mattison (OF) were reassigned to Minor League camp.
The Marlins opened camp with 73 players. A few days ago, lefty Andrew Heaney was reassigned to undergo rehab for a strained lat.
Alfredo Silverio, a Rule 5 pick in December, will be out several weeks with a right elbow strain.
