|Marlins send Brian Flynn right back down |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(6/27/14) The Marlins optioned pitcher Brian Flynn to Triple-A New Orleans Friday, just hours after he was recalled.
Flynn tossed three innings of long relief in the game, after starter Anthony DeSclafani was forced to leave with a forearm bruise. He struck out three batters and walked one, while allowing two runs on four hits.
A corresponding move has yet to be announce.
|Brian Flynn up, Justin Bour down for Marlins |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(6/27/14) The Marlins have promoted left-hander Brian Flynn from Triple-A New Orleans and demoted first baseman Justin Bour to the same team.
Flynn hasn't pitched in the majors this season, but did start four games a year ago, compiling an 0-2 mark and 8.50 ERA with 27 hits and 13 walks in 18 innings.
|Marlins looked at top prospects in wake of Jose Fernandez's injury |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(5/15/14) Though the Marlins ultimately settled on minor-leaguer Anthony DeSclafani and veteran Randy Wolf, they gave a few other pitchers consideration to join the rotation in the wake of Jose Fernandez's injury.
"[Top prospect Andrew Heaney ] was definitely in consideration, as was Brian Flynn [from Triple-A New Orleans]," president of baseball operations Michael Hill told MLB.com Wednesday. "We looked at all of our upper-level pitching. When we got the news, we really couldn't reshift rotations to make someone available."
Heaney, the team's consensus top prospect is putting together another solid season in Double-A Jacksonville, but his place in the rotation made it so he was unavailable to start Wednesday. Hill expects Heaney, Flynn and left-hander Adam Conley to be potential call-ups if a further need arises down the road.
|Marlins take 17 players off spring roster |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(3/17/14) The Marlins reassigned 17 players to the minors Monday, which included optioning top pitching prospect Andrew Heaney to Double-A Jacksonville. Catcher Rob Brantly was also optioned to Triple-A New Orleans.
Joining Brantly at New Orleans are Sam Dyson and Brian Flynn, who was competing for a spot in the team's rotation. Edgar Olmos was optioned to Jacksonville.
The Marlins also reassigned Nick Wittgren, Bryan Evans, James Leverton, Greg Nappo, Adam Conley, Josh Spence, Rett Varner, Austin Barnes, Danny Black, Mark Canha, Colin Moran and Joe Benson to minor-league camp. Moran, who was the sixth overall pick in the 2013 MLB draft, is one of the team's top hitting prospects.
|Brian Flynn pitches three scoreless innings vs. Red Sox |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/11/14) Marlins pitcher Brian Flynn drew the start Tuesday and surrendered just one hit in three scoreless innings while striking out one in his team's 5-4 win over the Red Sox.
It was the first start of the spring for Flynn after giving up four earned runs in four innings over his first two appearances. He gave up 17 earned runs in 18 innings with the Marlins last season and should be in line for more work at the major-league level during the upcoming season, though he isn't expected to break camp in the team's rotation.
|Brian Flynn made his MLB debut in 2013 as a September callup, but the results were not indicative of the strides the left-hander has made since his acquisition from Detroit in July 2012. Flynn struggled with his command, walking 13 batters and throwing three wild pitches, as he went 0-2 with an 8.50 ERA and 2.22 WHIP over four starts. Flynn did flash a little bit of his potential by striking out 15 batters in 18 innings. Following Flynn's arrival in 2012, the Marlins' coaches suggested a few mechanical adjustments to lengthen his stride and incorporate his entire body in his delivery. Flynn had great results in 2013 prior to his promotion, posting a 2.63 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 27 starts between Double-A and Triple-A. He was also striking out a career-high 8.2 batters per nine innings. Flynn profiles more as a back-of-the-rotation arm that can chew up innings, but first he will have to win a rotation spot. Even if that happens this spring, Flynn would be more of an NL-only Fantasy option at the outset of 2014.
