Miami optioned Cody Ege to Triple-A New Orleans on Monday afternoon and is likely to promote Nefi Ogando, according to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro.

Miami's bullpen was taxed early but was not used as often on the West Coast road trip. Ogando could be used in a middle relief role.
Manager Don Mattingly has used relievers in different situations, and as a result, Ogando might also receive an opportunity to serve in a setup role.
Ogando quickly progressed through Philadelphia's minor league system before being promoted last season.
