Ceda, James among roster moves

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Before facing the Mets on Friday afternoon at Digital Domain Park, the Marlins made six roster moves.

Right-hander Jose Ceda was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans, while right-handers Chris Hatcher, Evan Reed and Omar Poveda were optioned to Double-A Jacksonville. Right-hander Arquimedes Caminero was optioned to Class A Jupiter, and lefty Chad James was reassigned to Minor League camp.

The Marlins now have 53 players in camp, including 25 pitchers.

Ceda is a hard-throwing right-hander obtained from the Cubs for Kevin Gregg a couple of years ago, and James is a former first-round pick.

Minor Leaguer Reed on DL

Evan Reed, one of the Minor League pitchers acquired in the Jorge Cantu trade with Texas, has been placed on the disabled list with a right elbow strain.

The Marlins obtained Reed and right-hander Omar Poveda from the Rangers for Cantu on July 29 while the club was in San Francisco.

Reed, a right-handed reliever, made one appearance with Double-A Jacksonville. He threw 1 2/3 innings for the Suns on July 31. He is on the DL retroactive to Aug. 2.

Before the injury, the Marlins felt Reed was close to being big league ready. He threw 39 innings at Double-A Frisco in the Rangers system prior to the trade.

Poveda, a starting pitcher from Venezuela, is recovering from Tommy John surgery and he should be ready for Spring Training.
