MIAMI (AP) — The Miami Marlins solidified their bullpen by acquiring left-hander Tanner Scott and right-hander Cole Sulser from the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday night for two minor leaguers, a player to be named later and a draft pick.
Baltimore is getting left-hander Antonio Velez, outfielder Kevin Guerrero and Miami's 2022 Competitive Balance Round B pick in the deal that was announced by both teams.
Sulser, 32, went 5-4 with a 2.70 ERA last season. He struck out 73 in 63 1/3 innings and had eight saves for Baltimore.
The 27-year-old Scott was 5-4 with a 5.17 ERA and 70 strikeouts in 54 innings last season. Entering his sixth season, Scott has a big fastball and enticing stuff, but he also walked 6.17 batters per nine innings last season.
Miami designated right-hander Nick Neidert for assignment and put left-hander Sean Guenther on the 60-day injured list.
