JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — Pitcher Henry Rodriguez was reassigned to minor league camp by the Miami Marlins before the final game at their spring training complex.
Miami manager Mike Redmond said Thursday control issues and the lack of an ability to throw multiple innings prompted the decision. The 27-year-old right-hander struck out 14 and allowed six runs in nine innings during spring training.
Rodriguez, signed as a free agent, is 5-7 with a 4.24 ERA in a five-year career with Oakland, Washington and the Chicago Cubs.
Miami optioned outfielder Jake Marisnick and infielder Donovan Solano to Triple-A New Orleans and reassigned pitcher Chris Hatcher, outfielder Matt Angle and infielders Juan Diaz and Austin Nola to the minors.
