Marlins claim Duane Below

The Marlins have claimed reliever Duane Below on waivers.

The Marlins have claimed reliever Duane Below off waivers, reports Tom D'Angelo of the Palm Beach Post.

Below was recently waived by the Detroit Tigers.

Below is a left-handed reliever, and will provide the struggling Marlins with bullpen depth. He has been sent to Triple-A New Orleans, and should stay there until someone gets hurt. He will likely be one of the first people up in case of injury.

Below had a 4.06 ERA for the Tigers in 2011 and 2012, but the team did not deem him good enough to continue with them this year. Left-handed relievers always carry some extra value, so he should be able to continue sticking around.
