Marlins reinstate 3 players including closer José Ureña
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Miami Marlins reinstated right-handed pitchers José Ureña and Tayron Guerrero and infielder Miguel Rojas from the injured list Sunday as rosters expand for September.
Urena (4-7, 4.70 ERA) missed 73 games with a left lower back strain.
Manager Don Mattingly said Urena, who was the Marlins’ opening day starter, was in line to be the closer Sunday should a save situation arise.
Guerrero (1-1, 5.67) missed 21 games with a torn finger nail on his right middle finger.
Rojas, hitting .289 with four home runs and 33 RBIs, missed 23 games with a right hamstring strain. He was in the starting lineup at shortstop Sunday against the Nationals.
The Marlins entered Sunday looking to end a franchise-record 14-game road losing streak.
