Zastryzny's contract with the independent Long Island Ducks was selected by the Marlins on Tuesday.
Zastryzny had been under contract with the Atlantic League club but is now back in affiliated baseball. The 29-year-old owns a respectable 4.41 ERA in 34.2 innings at the major-league level, though the last of those innings came back in 2018.

Mishael Deson was added to the 60-man roster in a corresponding move after he was acquired from the Rockies.
Zastryzny will be a part of the Orioles' 60-man player pool this season.
