I anticipate the #Marlins will call up Tomas Telis, Brian Ellington and Nefi Ogando today. First wave of moves— Joe Frisaro (@JoeFrisaro) September 1, 2016
Teams can carry up to 40 players on their rosters through the end of the season starting Sept. 1.
Telis, 25, was acquired in the Sam Dyson trade with the Rangers last summer. Over 17 games last season, Telis batted .148/.207/.148. He has appeared in two games with the Marlins this season.
Ellington, 26, had success during his stint in Miami’s bullpen, pitching to a 0.92 ERA and 3.96 FIP over 19.2 innings. He will give the Marlins depth, with A.J. Ramos pitching in the eighth and Fernando Rodney closing games.
Ogando, 27, has pitched to a 5.68 ERA and 2.99 FIP over 6.1 innings with the Marlins this season.
Miami concludes its four game series against the New York Mets on Thursday night at Citi Field.
