Marlins designated RHP Kevin Slowey for assignment.

Slowey registered an ugly 5.30 ERA and 1.66 WHIP in two starts and 15 relief appearances for the Marlins. The 30-year-old righty will likely pass through waivers.
Jun 16 - 2:46 PM

Kevin Slowey allowed two runs over five innings in his first start of the season on Sunday.

Slowey was moved to the rotation after Brad Hand proved ineffective. Slowey had a strong spring and was decent Sunday, giving up just two runs on three hits. The right-hander also fanned three without walking a batter. His next start will come Saturday at the Mets.
Apr 20 - 4:11 PM's Joe Frisaro reports that "it appears" Kevin Slowey will start on Sunday against the Mariners.

The Marlins are sending Brad Hand back to the bullpen after a pair of ineffective starts. Slowey holds a 4.38 ERA and 7/4 K/BB ratio over 12 1/3 relief inning this season. He put up a 4.21 ERA in 14 starts with the Marlins last season.
Apr 16 - 10:24 AM

Marlins purchased the contract of RHP Kevin Slowey from Triple-A New Orleans.

The 29-year-old right-hander pitched well in Grapefruit League play, posting a 2.20 ERA, 0.61 WHIP and 11/1 K/BB ratio over 16 1/3 innings. Slowey's versatility, in being able to start and relieve, was a key factor in making the roster. Unless he's in the rotation, though, he doesn't hold any fantasy value.
Mar 30 - 5:00 PM

Kevin Slowey pitched three perfect innings in his final spring outing against the Yankees on Friday.

Slowey put the cherry on top of a very nice spring, striking out two while posting zeroes across the rest of the board in his three innings. Slowey leaves exhibition play with a 2.20 ERA over 16 1/3 innings. He's in camp as a non-roster invitee, and if he can't break camp with the club he'll likely catch on with another starter-needy team.
Mar 28 - 9:47 PM

Facing his old team, Kevin Slowey was charged with two runs in five innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Twins.

One of the runs was a result of Oswaldo Arcia's flyball getting lost in the sun. Slowey is having a fine spring, but with Tom Koehler in the lead for a rotation spot and Brad Hand out of options, it doesn't figure to result in Slowey making the Marlins. Perhaps another team will pick him up.
Mar 16 - 5:14 PM

Kevin Slowey pitched 2 2/3 scoreless innings in relief Wednesday against the Mets.

Slowey is up to 4 2/3 scoreless innings for the spring. He's battling Tom Koehler, Andrew Heaney and Brad Hand for the fifth spot in the Marlins rotation.
Mar 5 - 5:13 PM

Kevin Slowey fanned four over two scoreless innings as a Marlins split-squad routed the Mets 9-1 on Saturday.

Slowey is in the mix with Tom Koehler and Andrew Heaney for the fifth spot in Miami's rotation. He was solid last year, posting a 4.11 ERA in 92 innings before getting hurt, but since he's less reliable than Koehler and he doesn't have Heaney's ceiling, he seems like a long shot to make the team this spring.
Mar 1 - 5:22 PM

Marlins re-signed RHP Kevin Slowey to a minor league contract.

Slowey posted a 4.11 ERA and 76/18 K/BB ratio over 92 innings last season with the Marlins before going down with a strained right forearm. Assuming he's healthy, the veteran right-hander could surface in the starting rotation at some point in 2014.
Jan 8 - 11:42 AM

Marlins activated RHP Kevin Slowey from the 60-day disabled list, sent him outright to Triple-A New Orleans.

More housecleaning on the Marlins' 40-man roster. Slowey posted a 4.11 ERA and 76/18 K/BB ratio over 92 innings this season prior to going down with a right forearm strain in July.

Marlins transferred RHP Kevin Slowey to the 60-day disabled list.

The move all but effectively rules out any chance of Slowey returning to the Fish before the end of the season. The 29-year-old right-hander, who has been shelved since July 26, had a solid comeback campaign in 2013, posting a 4.11 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 76/18 K/BB ratio over 92 innings between the rotation and the bullpen.

Kevin Slowey is expected to miss 4-6 weeks after an MRI Monday revealed a strained right forearm muscle.

Slowey felt discomfort while warming up in the bullpen Saturday and was placed on the DL after the game. Given where the Marlins are in the standings, it's certainly possible that it could wind up being a season-ending injury. "As much as I want to figure that out right now, I know I'm just best off taking it one day at a time," Slowey said.
Mon, Jul 29, 2013 06:48:00 PM

Marlins placed RHP Kevin Slowey on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 26, with right forearm discomfort.

Slowey felt some pain in his arm while throwing in the bullpen during Saturday's game. A corresponding roster move will be made before Sunday's series finale with the Pirates. Slowey is 3-6 with a 4.11 ERA this season.
Sat, Jul 27, 2013 11:07:00 PM

Kevin Slowey pitched five scoreless innings against the Braves in his return to the rotation on Monday.

Slowey is no lock to remain in the rotation after the All-Star break, but he did help his case tonight. With his plus WHIP and solid strikeout rate, he can be a decent NL-only pitcher if he sticks.
