Marlins promote reliever Ames
MIAMI — The Marlins will get a look at one of the prospects they acquired in the Ricky Nolasco trade.
Steven Ames, a right-handed reliever, is being recalled from Triple-A New Orleans on Sunday to replace injured Kevin Slowey.
Slowey is headed to the disabled list with right elbow discomfort.
Ames, 25, is making his first big league callup.
Miami acquired the right-hander, who attended Gonzaga (manager Mike Redmond’s college), earlier this month from the Dodgers for Nolasco.
Ames made five appearances with New Orleans, and he didn’t allow a run.
Before being dealt to Miami, Ames was 2-2 with a 3.67 ERA in 30 appearances for Triple-A Albuquerque.
