The Florida Marlins have designated righty Jay Buente for assignment Monday afternoon. Buente allowed four runs on three hits in just three innings of work on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Rays in a 5-0 loss. It doesn’t seem like anyone is going to pick him up so I suspect that he’ll be outrighted back to Triple-A.
In place of Buente, the Marlins recalled RHP Steve Cishek from Triple-A New Orleans. Cishek is expected to pitch out of the bullpen for Florida this week. In 15 relief appearances Cishek posted a 2.35 ERA in the minors this season.
