Boxberger is part of the Marlins' 60-man player pool, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.

The veteran reliever was in camp on a minor-league deal, but he was in line to make the club prior to the shutdown, so this comes as no surprise. Brandon Kintzler, Ryne Stanek (back) and Yimi Garcia are better bets to get saves this year, but it wouldn't be that surprising if Boxberger got enough late-inning opportunities to record a couple saves in the condensed season.
