The Marlins have reinstated reliever Jose Urena from the disabled list and recalled infielder Donovan Solano, per the Miami Herald. Urena had been out with a bruised left knee. He performed poorly when healthy, posting a 1-5 record and 5.11 ERA this season. Solano was demoted in early August after recording a terrible slash line of .156/.194/.219 in just 64 at-bats with the Marlins.
The Marlins shuffled their roster on Friday, calling up two minor leaguers and placing two players on the disabled list, the team announced. Pitcher Kendry Flores was promoted from Triple-A New Orleans, while pitcher Kyle Barraclough was sent up from Double-A Jacksonville. Headed to the 15-day disabled list are relief pitcher Jose Urena and Andre Rienzo.
Marlins right-hander Jose Urena has pitched well recently and lost. He performed horribly Thursday and did not lose. He didn't win, either. He was fortunate to gain a no-decision when his team rallied after he had allowed five runs on six hits in just two innings against Atlanta. He walked one without a strikeout. Urena blew a 2-0 lead in the first on two doubles, a single and a sacrifice fly. An RBI single by Jace Peterson and two-run double by Nick Markakis ended the early onslaught and doomed him to an early exit. His ERA has skyrocketed from 4.04 to 5.11 over his last two starts as he has given up 10 earned runs in seven innings.
Marlins rookie starter Jose Urena struggled in his latest outing against the Padres on Saturday night. Urena allowed five runs (four earned) on eight hits over five innings. He struck out two and did not walk a batter in the 5-3 loss. Urena was unable to get into a groove in this one. He allowed an early run in the first inning, followed by a four spot in the third, thanks in part to a fielding error. Urena (1-5, 4.37 ERA) was making his first appearance for the Marlins since June 28. He was throwing well before that demotion, allowing a total of seven runs in his previous four starts.
The Marlins have recalled right-hander Jose Urena from Triple-A New Orleans on Friday. The rookie pitcher has made nine appearances, including seven starts, for the Marlins this season. He owns a 1-4 record with a 4.04 ERA. In five starts since being sent back down to Triple-A, Urena is 2-1 with a 4.45 ERA and a 19:7 K:BB ratio.
