The Marlins outrighted Marrero to Triple-A New Orleans on Sunday, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
The utility infielder went unclaimed off waivers and will stick in the Miami organization after accepting his assignment to Triple-A rather than requesting his release. Before being dropped from the Marlins' 40-man roster a few days ago, Marrero appeared in five games, going hitless in five at-bats.
Marrero was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Friday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Marrero was removed from the 40-man roster as Neil Walker (finger) was activated off the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Marrero failed to record a hit in five at-bats for the Marlins, and it's unclear whether any teams will claim the 28-year-old off waivers.
Marrero had his contract selected from Triple-A New Orleans on Wednesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Marrero will provide the Marlins with infield depth while Miguel Rojas (hamstring), who was sent to the injured list in a corresponding move, is on the mend. The 28-year-old utility man owns a career .197 average across parts of four big-league seasons.
Marrero elected not to exercise the opt-out clause in his minor-league contract with the Marlins and will report to Triple-A New Orleans, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
A veteran of 158 career regular-season games in the majors, Marrero joined the Marlins on a minor-league deal this winter with the hope of earning an Opening Day role as a utility man. Though he was successful in his bid for the roster, he chose to remain with the organization, likely due in some part to the fact that he grew up in Miami. Given the lack of established talent currently populating the roster, it wouldn't be surprising if Marrero earned a call back to the big leagues once injuries strike the Miami infield.
Marrero signed a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training with the Marlins on Monday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Marrero got into 49 games with Arizona as a utility man last season, hitting a miserable .167/.224/.205. Those numbers weren't far off his career .197/.250/.283 slash line, compiled over 343 plate appearances across parts of four seasons. He can fill in around the infield but his bat is far too weak for him to be a noteworthy real-world or fantasy asset.
The Diamondbacks activated Marrero (oblique) from the 10-day disabled list Tuesday and designated him for assignment, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
Marrero appeared in seven minor-league rehab games and proved that he had fully recovered from the left oblique strain that had kept him sidelined since late June, but the Diamondbacks had no need for him on the active roster as a utility man with all of Eduardo Escobar, Ketel Marte and Daniel Descalso capable of playing multiple spots around the infield. It's possible that one of MLB's other 29 teams may value Marrero's defensive prowess enough to trade for him or put in a waiver claim, but the 27-year-old seems destined for a bench role regardless of where or when he gets his next opportunity in the majors.
Marrero (oblique) started at third base Sunday in a rehab game at Triple-A Reno and went 0-for-5 with a strikeout.
Marrero played all nine innings in the field for the second consecutive day, an indication that the left oblique strain that forced him to the disabled list June 30 is no longer a concern. It's expected that Marrero will be activated from the DL in the coming days and reprise his utility-infield role with the big club.
Marrero started at third base and went 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored Wednesday in his rehab appearance for Triple-A Reno.
Marrero played in three rehab games in the rookie-level Arizona League before shifting his assignment to the Pacific Coast League. He logged six innings in the field Wednesday and may need to appear in a full game or two before the Diamondbacks are comfortable bringing the utility man back from the 10-day disabled list.
Marrero (oblique) has appeared in two rehab games for the Diamondbacks' rookie-level Arizona League affiliate, going a combined 1-for-5 at the plate in those contests.
Marrero's last appearance came Sunday, but there haven't been any reports to suggest that he's endured a setback in his recovery from the left oblique strain. Once the 27-year-old logs some more at-bats in the minors and proves he's fully healthy, he'll be ticketed for a utility role with the big club.
Marrero (oblique) has accelerated his workouts but hasn't been cleared to begin a minor-league rehab assignment, the Associated Press reports.
Marrero has been on the shelf since June 27 with the left oblique strain. The Diamondbacks likely aren't eager to rush Marrero back to the big club, especially with two capable utility options already on hand in Daniel Descalso and Chris Owings.
Marrero was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left oblique Saturday.
The assignment is retroactive to June 29, so Marrero could return June 10 against the Rockies. Jimmie Sherfy was recalled from Triple-A Reno in a corresponding move.
Marrero started at third base and went 1-for-3 with an RBI single in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Marlins.
Marrero was making his first start in 10 games and only his fifth of June. The 27-year-old boasts a sound glove at multiple infield spots, but with Daniel Descalso giving Arizona a capable utility option with more offensive upside, Marrero seems like a redundant piece. It wouldn't be surprising if he was removed from the 40-man roster later in the season if the Diamondbacks need to open up a spot for another pitcher, catcher or outfielder.
Marrero will start at third base and bat eighth Wednesday against the Brewers.
After occupying the short side of a platoon at third base with Daniel Descalso for much of the season, Marrero's limited workload has only gotten smaller following Jake Lamb's recent return from the 10-day disabled list. Marrero will pick up just his second start in 13 games Wednesday while the left-handed Lamb and Descalso sit out with southpaw Brent Suter on the mound for Milwaukee.
Marrero went 0-for-2 with a walk, a stolen base and a run scored in the Diamondbacks' 4-2 win over the Padres on Sunday.
Marrero has picked up the last four starts at the hot corner, but it's worth noting that the Diamondbacks have opposed left-handed starting pitchers on three of those occasions. As such, the lefty-hitting Daniel Descalso still seems in line to receive the bulk of the starts at the position until Jake Lamb (elbow) returns from the 10-day disabled list, at which point Descalso and Marrero will both fade into utility roles.
Marrero went 2-for-4 with a triple, two runs scored and an RBI on Saturday against the Padres.
Marrero has been in the lineup for three consecutive games, but hasn't produced much with the bat. Saturday's triple marked his first extra-base hit of the season, and he is hitting just .233/.250/.300 in 30 at-bats. Marrero's lack of ability at the plate combined with inconsistent playing time keeps him largely off the radar.
Marrero went 1-for-4 with two RBI in Saturday's 9-1 win over the Dodgers.
Marrero was initially credited with a three-run home run -- his first of the season -- in the top of the fourth inning, but the hit was later changed to a single following an appeal by Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. Officials determined that Marrero passed teammate Alex Avila between first and second base, resulting in Marrero being called out after the first two runs scored. While the fluky baserunning gaffe was undoubtedly frustrating for Marrero, the scoring change likely didn't have many fantasy implications. As a part-time player who receives starts mainly on the strength of his defense, Marrero carries little appeal even in NL-only settings.
Marrero started at third base and went 1-for-4 with a run scored in Tuesday's 6-1 win over the Dodgers.
With Jake Lamb (shoulder) hitting the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with a sprained AC joint, Marrero received the first look at third base in his stead. Marrero has always been held in high esteem for his defensive abilities, but a career .210/.260/.309 line will limit his fantasy upside if he ends up seeing semi-regular starts. For what it's worth, manager Torey Lovullo said he plans to mix and match at third base while Lamb is sidelined, meaning that Daniel Descalso, Ketel Marte and potentially Chris Owings could see more opportunities at the position.
Marrero was traded to the Diamondbacks on Saturday in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
The 27-year-old Marrero was fighting for an Opening Day roster spot with the Red Sox, but Boston ended up going with Brock Holt as their utility man instead. The former first-round pick never quite found his offensive stroke with the Red Sox, hitting just .243/.309/.330 across all levels in his six-year professional career. Given Marrero is out of options, it seems likely that he'll open the season as the Diamondbacks' utility infielder.
Marrero (arm) will start at shortstop and bat seventh for the Red Sox in their exhibition opener Thursday against Northeastern University, Sean McAdam of BostonSportsJournal.com reports.
The Red Sox shut Marrero down during winter ball in November after he experienced a sore arm, but it was always considered a minor injury and nothing that would affect his preparation for the upcoming season. Marrero's presence in Boston's first lineup of the spring adds credence to that notion, so look for the infielder to pick up plenty of at-bats this spring as he aims to win an Opening Day spot as a utility man.
Marrero has returned from winter ball due to a sore arm, Scott Lauber of ESPN.com reports.
Marrero and Sam Travis (hip) both returned to Boston with what the team is describing as minor injuries. The 27-year-old appeared in 71 games for the Red Sox last season, compiling an unremarkable .211/.258/.333 line with 61 strikeouts in 188 plate appearances. He should be healthy for spring training, where he'll fight to make the Opening Day roster as a utility man.
