After yesterday's game the Marlins made a roster move.
Petit, who made one start with the Marlins, has mainly been used in long relief, and the club wants him to get more regular work.
The Venezuelan is 1-1 with an 8.68 ERA in 18 2/3 big-league innings in two stints with the Marlins.
This is a good move by the team. Petit is a starter and he needs to get more work than he was getting with the big club.
Since being sent down Resop hasn't allowed a run and has only given up one hit.
Given how well the starters are doing at going at least five innings or deeper, the team doesn't have a consistent need for long relievers at this point. The club does, however, have a need for short relievers. Resop should fit that bill very nicely.
