Zarate recalled

The Marlins have recalled right-handed reliever Mauro Zarate.

Right-hander Mauro Zarate was recalled from Class AAA Albuquerque and added to the roster before Tuesday's game.

We are going to need another chair in the bullpen.  

As overworked as the bullpen has been this season, adding another arm couldn't hurt.  Whether Zarate is lights out or not doesn't really matter, he could help to relieve some of the work load with the plus of getting him some more innings against Major League hitters.  His last trip up to the bigs was a bit iffy pitching only 1.1 innings and allowing 3 runs of which only 2 were earned.  Maybe the defense will help out a little better this go around.
