The Marlins have sent right-hander Jeff Lindgren outright to Triple-A Jacksonville after he went unclaimed on waivers, tweets Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald. It’s the second time this month in which the Fish ran Lindgren through waivers.
Lindgren, a 24th round pick in 2019, has one big league outing under his belt. That was a five-inning relief appearance at the start of this year. He allowed four runs with three walks and no strikeouts after being pressed into earlier than expected work following a injury to Johnny Cueto. That preceded his first DFA. He wound up starting two games for Jacksonville, throwing 10 2/3 frames of seven-run ball before being called back up over the weekend.
The Illinois State product’s second promotion didn’t result in any action. Miami designated him for assignment again on Monday as part of a revolving door at the back of the pitching staff. He could now head back to Triple-A, though he’d have the right to test free agency as a player who has twice cleared outright waivers in his career.
