Marlins' Nick Wittgren: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wittgren was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans on Wednesday.

Edinson Volquez (thumb) was placed on the disabled list after the Marlins determined he would miss his next turn in the rotation Sunday against the Mets, so Wittgren should help fortify the bullpen at least until the team needs to recall a starter from Triple-A to replace Volquez. Wittgren has made three appearances with the big club this season, giving up two runs in 6.2 innings and striking out seven batters.

Marlins' Nick Wittgren: Optioned to minors after impressive appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wittgren was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans after Thursday's 16-inning loss to the Mets, Andre C. Fernandez of The Miami Herald reports.

Wittgren had three strikeouts on 45 pitches while retiring all nine batters he faced in the 13th, 14th and 15th innings of Thursday's marathon. He's partially a victim of his own success, as the length of Thursday's contest will force Miami to call up an extra arm from the minors. Wittgren did allow two earned runs over 3.2 innings prior to Thursday, but he'll likely return to the majors at some point in the coming weeks.

Marlins' Nick Wittgren: Expected to make Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wittgren appears to have secured a spot in the Marlins bullpen heading into Opening Day, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports.

With Wittgren's primary competition for the final spot in the bullpen, Hunter Cervenka and Brian Ellington, optioned to Triple-A New Orleans on Tuesday, it looks like he'll break camp with the big club for the first time in his career. Wittgren has struck out 11 batters in 8.1 innings in Grapefruit League competition, a strong follow-up to the 3.14 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 42:10 K:BB ratio he submitted in 51.2 innings with the big club as a rookie.

Marlins' Nick Wittgren: Odds of breaking camp in bullpen improving
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wittgren could win a spot as a long reliever to begin the season if Jeff Locke (biceps) winds up on the DL, The Miami Herald reports.

The Marlins plan to carry an extra bullpen arm this season, but even so Wittgren seemed ticketed for Triple-A New Orleans until Locke's arm became an issue. Wittgren is likely battling Brian Ellington for the open spot, as both have experience in a variety of bullpen roles, but neither has pulled away from the other so far this spring.

Marlins' Nick Wittgren: Will compete for bullpen role this spring
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wittgren will compete for a bullpen role with the Marlins in spring training.

He put together a strong major league debut in 2016 thanks to his plus control, but Miami signed Brad Ziegler and Junichi Tazawa in the offseason to bolster their bullpen, and Wittgren's somewhat pedestrian raw stuff leaves him with no guarantees that he'll break camp with a spot on the 25-man roster. He does have plenty of experience as a minor league closer, but Wittgren's role with the Marlins would be in much lower leverage situations if he does hang onto a job.
