Marlins added 31st overall pitcher

Make it 31 pitchers and counting.

The Marlins added yet another reliever on Monday, selecting the contract of Steve Cishek from Double-A Jacksonville.

To make room on the 40-man roster, right-hander Jhan Marinez has been transferred to the 60-day disabled list.

Over the course of the season, the Marlins have had 31 different pitchers on the roster, a franchise record. Not all of them has pitched yet. Sandy Rosario was brought up as the 30th pitcher on Sunday, but he has not thrown in a big league game yet.
