Rauch designated, Below recalled

MIAMI — After losing 9-2 to the D-backs on Friday night, the Marlins made a couple of roster moves.

Reliever Jon Rauch was designated for assignment, and lefty reliever Duane Below was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans.

Miami has dropped six straight, and in relief on Friday Rauch was charged with two runs on four hits in one inning.

Rauch made 15 appearances and he was 1-2 with a 7.56 ERA in 16 2/3 innings.

Below, 27, has MLB experience as a reliever with the Tigers. A year ago, he was 2-1 with a 3.88 ERA in 27 relief appearances at the big league level.

The lefty made four starts for New Orleans, posting a 2-2 record with a 3.38 ERA with 15 strikeouts and six walks in 21 1/3 innings.
