Marlins Claim LHP Below, Send Him To Minors

MIAMI (AP) — The Miami Marlins have claimed left-hander Duane Below off waivers and optioned him to Triple-A New Orleans.

The Detroit Tigers designated Below for assignment earlier in the week to make room on their 40-man roster for reliever Jose Valverde. Detroit announced Miami’s claim Thursday.

Below has not pitched in the majors this year. He went 2-3 with a 4.06 ERA in 41 appearances for the Tigers over the last two seasons.
