Marlins designate Maine, bring up Koehler
The Marlins have designed right-hander John Maine for assignment, and recalled right-hander Tom Koehler from Triple-A New Orleans.
Maine, who made the club as a non-roster invitee, made four relief appearances, posting a 12.27 ERA in 7 1/3 innings.
The 31-year-old threw two innings in Thursday’s 11-1 loss at Cincinnati, allowing six runs on four hits in two innings with five walks and three strikeouts.
Maine broke in with the Orioles in 2004, and from 2006-10, he pitched for the Mets before experiencing shoulder problems.
Koehler made three starts for New Orleans, and in 17 innings he has a 1.06 ERA with 14 strikeouts and 10 walks.
