Reed announced his retirement this week, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports. The former first-rounder made two appearances at the major league level in 2015, allowing two runs over 4.0 innings. However, he spent the entire 2016 campaign in the minors. He retires with a career 4.27 ERA and 1.38 WHIP across all levels.
The Marlins optioned pitcher Chris Reed to Triple-A New Orleans on Wednesday. To take his spot on the roster, pitcher Chris Narveson was promoted from New Orleans.
The Marlins have promoted left-handers Adam Conley and Chris Reed from Triple-A New Orleans and sent down catcher Tomas Telis to the same team. Conley earned one start with Miami this season and allowed two runs in five innings. He is 9-3 with a 2.52 ERA in the minors in 2015 and will likely replace the just-traded Dan Haren in the rotation. Reed, who came over from the Dodgers on July 15, has yet to pitch in the big leagues. He has allowed just one run in his last 9 2/3 innings pitched for the Zephyrs. Telis is batting .182 in just 11 at-bats at the major league level this year.

He is 2-2 with a 5.97 ERA in 24 relief appearances. Dayton, who was an 11th-round pick in 2010, is 2-1 with a 2.83 ERA in 25 relief appearances for New Orleans this season. The left-hander is 20-16 with a 2.62 ERA and 14 saves in six minor-league seasons.
