Wes Obermueller was designated for assignment.
Following Monday's, 5-3, loss to the Cardinals, right-hander Wes Obermueller was designated for assignment. The Marlins needed to make a move because on Tuesday, Rick Vanden Hurk is being recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque. Vanden Hurk will start on Tuesday night against St. Louis. This will be the eighth appearance and seventh start for Vanden Hurk, who was promoted twice earlier this season.
Obermueller was 2-3 with a 6.56 ERA in 18 games, including seven starts, for Florida.
My guess is that he will clear waivers with ease.
