  • Barely a week after the Marlins claimed Yoan López off waivers, López has been displaced from their 40-man roster to make room for fellow right-handed reliever Tommy Nance. The 6-foot-6 Nance began his big league career last season with a month-long scoreless streak, but got hit hard after that. Nance has two more minor league options remaining.
