Miami added another arm to its staff Thursday.

The Marlins acquired Reds pitcher Dan Straily in exchange for minor leaguers Luis Castillo, Austin Brice and Isaiah White on Thursday, according to’s Joe Frisaro.

Straily, 28, had a productive 2016 season with the Reds, posting a 3.76 ERA and 4.88 FIP over 191.1 innings. Though his career ERA is 4.24, Straily has shown signs of being consistent, specifically in the first two years of his major league career.

Straily isn’t eligible for free agency until 2021 and will likely join Miami’s starting rotation entering 2017.

Though the Marlins landed one of the better available arms, the club was forced to part with three of its top 16 prospects, according to MLB Pipeline rankings.

The Marlins were open to moving Luis Castillo in the Colin Rea trade with San Diego last winter before he ultimately was sent back to Miami. Castillo is a candidate to pitch in the majors this season and posted a 2.26 ERA over a combined 131.2 innings with Single and Double-A.

Brice struggled over 14 innings with the Marlins but had success in the minors, and White represented one of the few notable outfield prospects the Marlins have.
