Steckenrider was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans on Monday.
Steckenrider was sent back to New Orleans to clear room for Justin Nicolino (finger), who was activated from the disabled list and is scheduled to start Monday night against the Nationals. The 26-year-old didn't impress much in his second stint with the Marlins this season, allowing two runs on seven hits and two walks over 2.1 innings (three appearances) out of the bullpen. He'll await his next call-up as he looks to build on his already impressive resume with the Baby Cakes this season (1.65 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 33 strikeouts in 27.1 innings).
Steckenrider will embark his second trip to the majors this season after spending three days with the team in late May. During that span, the right-hander earned one appearance, completing a shutout inning with one hit allowed and one strikeout against the A's. Throughout the course of 2017 in the minors, Steckenrider has compiled a 1.80 ERA with a 0.80 WHIP and a 32:7 K:BB in 25 innings of work.
Steckenrider was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans on Friday.
Steckenrider appeared just once during his brief cup of coffee in the big leagues and didn't allow a run, but he'll retreat to the minors with David Phelps returning from the bereavement list. Steckenrider will look to sustain the success he had in the minors prior to his call-up as evidenced by his 1.25 in ERA in 16 relief appearances for the Baby Cakes.
Steckenrider was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans on Tuesday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
He'll take the place of David Phelps, who was placed on bereavement following Sunday's contest. The 26-year-old compiled a 1.25 ERA and 26 strikeouts through 21.2 innings with New Orleans before earning the promotion. It will likely be a brief stint with the big club for Steckenrider, who will likely head back to Triple-A once Phelps returns.
Steckenrider was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans on Friday, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.
Steckenrider impressed throughout 2016, notching a combined 2.08 ERA in 50.2 as he jumped from High-A to Triple-A all within the year. He wavered a little in his short stint with New Orleans, and posted a 12.00 ERA across three innings this spring, so it shows he's not quite there yet. However, with a strong showing in Triple-A to start the year, the 26-year-old could earn himself a spot in the Marlins' bullpen by the end of 2017.
