Marlins Pitcher Goes Unclaimed on Waivers; Sent Outright to Triple-A

The Miami Marlins designated him for assignment on August 17th, however, he passed through waivers unclaimed. 

As a result, pitcher Parker Bugg has been sent outright to Triple-A Jacksonville. 

It's been a long and frustrating road for Parker Bugg, who's still looking to make his major league debut. The Marlins even brought Bugg onto the 40-man roster, but never got him into a game. 

The twenty-seven-year-old is a former 27th-round pick of the Marlins in the 2016 MLB Draft. 

He's actually had a very good season in the minors this year. In 38 innings, split between Double-A and Triple-A, Bugg has recorded a very strong 2.33 ERA and 44 strikeouts. He's also started three games, giving an extra bit of versatility.

Perhaps, we'll still see Parker Bugg making his MLB debut with the Miami Marlins at some point in the future.
