Miami Marlins Starter Goes Unclaimed On Waivers; Sent Outright

He went unclaimed on waivers.

As a result, the Miami Marlins have sent pitcher Daniel Castano outright to Triple-A Jacksonville.

Castano was designated for assignment following the signing of Johhny Cueto, but he'll stay with the organization now after clearing waivers.

It's a bit surprising that no team scooped him up off the waiver wire, as the twenty-eight-year-old holds a solid 3.89 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, and 45 strikeouts over 85.2 innings of work in the majors. He's made 17 starts, five relief appearances and holds a 2-7 record.

Castano has enjoyed similar success in his minor-league career as well, recording a 3.81 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 427 strikeouts over 505.1 innings and 79 starts.

The Marlins will gladly take the extra starting pitcher depth.

Castano is a former 19th-round pick by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 2016 MLB Draft.
