Capps get call up from New Orleans
The Marlins have added a fresh arm to their heavily-used bullpen.
Carter Capps was recalled on Wednesday to fill the roster spot of Arquimedes Caminero, who was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans after Tuesday’s 1-0 win at Atlanta.
Capps was dominant at New orleans, posting a 1.64 ERA. In 11 innings, he struck out 17 and walked 6. The right-hander also allowed just eight hits.
Acquired from the Mariners in December for Logan Morrison, Capps was in big league camp with Miami. However, he was working on some delivery issues, and the club felt it was best for him to open the year at New Orleans.
Capps’ numbers in the spring where five walks, with eight strikeouts in 10 innings, to go along with a 3.60 ERA.
The Marlins considered bringing Capps up after Jacob Turner was placed on the disabled list on April 9, but instead went with Caminero.
With the Mariners, Capps had 71 games of big league experience, posting a 5.04 ERA in 84 innings.
