MIAMI – The Miami Marlins today acquired RHP Adam Cimber from the Cleveland Indians in exchange for cash considerations.

In his third Major League season, Cimber made 14 appearances for Cleveland in 2020, going 0-1 with a 3.97 ERA in 11.1 innings with only one home run allowed.

He pitched in a team-high 68 games for the Indians in 2019, going 6-3 with a 4.45 ERA in 56.2 innings. Cimber spent the entire season in the Cleveland bullpen, finishing second on the team with 19 holds, which was tied for 14th among American League relievers. He held opponents scoreless in 49 of his 68 appearances and allowed just 24.4 percent (11-of-45) of inherited runners to score, good for seventh-lowest in the AL.

In all, Cimber, 30, has pitched in 152 games over three MLB seasons going 9-12 with a 3.89 ERA in 136.1 innings. He has finished 33 games, including one save.

In order to make room on the 40-man roster, RHP Jose Ureña was designated for assignment. Miami’s Opening Day starter in 2018 and 2019, Ureña pitched in six seasons with the Marlins and is 12th in franchise history with 406 strikeouts and 13th with 98 starts. He was 0-3 with a 5.40 ERA in five starts in 2020.
