Rangers sent RHP Jhan Marinez outright to Triple-A Round Rock.

Rangers claimed RHP Jhan Marinez off waivers from the Pirates.

The 28-year-old right-hander was designated for assignment by Pittsburgh last week to open a roster spot for George Kontos. Marinez holds a decent 3.50 career ERA in the majors and will join the Rangers' bullpen in a middle relief role on Friday.
Aug 10 - 2:56 PM

Pirates designated RHP Jhan Marinez for assignment.

The move clears a 40-man roster spot for reliever George Kontos, who was claimed off waivers from the Giants on Saturday. Marinez, 28, has a 3.50 career ERA in the majors and could draw some interest on the waiver wire.

Pirates claimed RHP Jhan Marinez off waivers from the Brewers.

Marinez was designated for assignment by Milwaukee after holding a 5.40 ERA and 2.04 WHIP over 15 appearances. The Pirates will make a corresponding move once Marinez reports.

Marinez posted a 5.40 ERA and 2.04 WHIP over 15 appearances to lose his job. He could clear waivers.
May 15 - 5:39 PM

Jhan Marinez has made the Brewers' bullpen.

Marinez is out of minor league options, so he would've had to really tank this spring to miss the Opening Day roster. The right-hander instead posted a sharp 1.13 ERA across eight Cactus League innings. He'll operate in a middle relief role for the Brewers.
Mar 23 - 1:07 PM

Brewers acquired RHP Jhan Marinez from the Rays for cash.

Milwaukee cleared a roster spot for Marinez by designating Michael Kirkman for assignment. Marinez was DFA'd by Tampa Bay on Sunday. The 27-year-old made his first big league appearance in four years earlier this year. He gives the Brewers some organizational depth but little else.

Rays designated RHP Jhan Marinez for assignment.

Marinez allowed one run over 3 2/3 innings of relief work for the Rays. There's a decent chance he'll clear waivers and remain in the organization.

Rays recalled RHP Jhan Marinez from Triple-A Durham.

Top prospect Blake Snell was sent down in the corresponding roster move. Marinez was among the Rays' final cuts during spring training. He's done a nice job at Triple-A this year, recording a 2.25 ERA over six outings. The 27-year-old will be used in mid relief.

Rays re-assigned RHPs Jhan Marinez and Tyler Sturdevant, OF Jaff Decker and C Mayo Acosta to minor league camp.

Given the injuries that the Rays have experienced in the bullpen, there was an outside chance that Marinez could have cracked the Opening Day roster, but there are no real surprises in this group of cuts.
Sun, Mar 27, 2016 06:39:00 PM

Rays re-signed RHP Jhan Marinez to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The 25-year-old was released by the Tigers last week after posting a disappointing 8.84 ERA, 2.40 WHIP and 21/21 K/BB ratio over 18 1/3 innings at Triple-A Toledo. He'll serve as organizational bullpen depth for the Dodgers.
