Axelrod was reassigned to minor league camp Wednesday. Axelrod spent most of 2015 in the minor leagues where he went 6-8 with a 4.68 ERA at Triple-A Louisville. He had a brief stint with the Reds in which he was roughed up to the tune of a 7.30 ERA over 12.3 innings pitched. The 30-year-old has only pitched in 11 MLB games over the past two seasons, and it is unlikely that he sees significant time with the Marlins in 2016.
Axelrod signed a minor league deal with the Marlins that includes an invite to Spring Training, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports. Axelrod spent the last two seasons with the Reds, where he logged just over 30 innings in the majors. Over 105.2 frames at the Triple-A level, the right-hander posted a 4.68 ERA and 5.88 K/9. He'll look to catch on in a new organization, and the Marlins will benefit from a low-risk deal.
The Reds designated pitcher Dylan Axelrod for assignment, the team announced Tuesday. Axelrod has a 7.30 ERA over 12 1/3 innings.
The Reds called up pitcher Sam LeCure and optioned pitcher Dylan Axelrod to the minor leagues on Wednesday, the team announced. LeCure had a 3.81 ERA over 56 2/3 innings last season while Axelrod produced a 7.30 ERA over 12 1/3 innings this season.
The Reds recalled RHP Dylan Axelrod from Triple-A Louisville. Axelrod was 6-6 with a 4.05 ERA with Louisville, per the Cincinnati Enquirer. Axelrod will replace Manny Parra, who the Reds placed on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left elbow. The team currently has no timetable for Parra's return. To clear space on the 40-man roster, the Reds moved catcher Devin Mesoraco to the 60-day disabled list. Mesoraco is out for the season after hip surgery.
