Bender's contract was selected by the Marlins on Tuesday.

Bender has yet to pitch above Double-A and has only thrown 5.2 innings at that level. He looked quite good in 36.1 minor-league innings (ranging from Low-A to Double-A) in the Brewers' system in 2019, finishing with a 1.49 ERA and 1.10 WHIP. Paul Campbell (suspension) landed on the restricted list in a corresponding move.
