Marlins Outright Matt Andriese

The Marlins have sent right-hander Matt Andriese outright to Triple-A Jacksonville, according to his transactions tracker at MLB.com. That indicates he cleared waivers after being designated for assignment a few days ago. He has the right to elect free agency but accepted an outright assignment with the Marlins earlier this year.

Andriese, 34, signed a minor league deal with the Marlins in February. He has twice been selected to the big league roster this year but both times resulted in a fairly short stay before he was designated for assignment and passed through waivers. Over those two stints, he has tossed six innings over four appearances with four earned runs allowed, leading to an earned run average of 6.00. He’s spent most of the year working a multi-inning role in Triple-A, logging 32 frames over 13 appearances with a 4.78 ERA, 15.6% strikeout rate, 8.5% walk rate and 37.4% ground ball rate.

The Miami pitching staff has been decimated by injuries and might get even further thinned out at the deadline. Braxton GarrettSandy AlcántaraEury PérezJesús LuzardoSixto SánchezRyan Weathers and Josh Simpson are all currently on the injured list, with some of those guys out for the year. Tanner Scott seems very likely to be traded as an impending free agent on a club at the bottom of the standings, while guys like A.J. Puk, Anthony Bender, Andrew Nardi, Calvin Faucher and Declan Cronin have been mentioned in trade rumors or are speculative candidates to be moved.

If Andriese decides to report to Jacksonville, as he did when outrighted in April, there’s a decent chance he’ll be called up to the big leagues again as the Marlins wind down the season. From 2015 to 2021, Andriese tossed 509 innings between the Rays, Diamondbacks, Angels, Red Sox and Mariners with a 4.63 ERA, 21.7% strikeout rate, 6.7% walk rate and 46.1% ground ball rate. He didn’t pitch in the majors in 2022 or 2023, spending time with the Yomiuri Giants of Nippon Professional Baseball and the Triple-A Oklahoma City Dodgers.
