Also Sunday, the Marlins optioned outfielder Braxton Lee to New Orleans. He was 0 for 4 with a walk in his five plate appearances with Miami this season, appearing in two of the season’s first three games.
Miami also designated right-hander Brian Ellington for assignment. Ellington made 97 relief appearances for the Marlins from 2015 through 2017, going 7-4 with a 4.65 ERA.
