Florida Marlins sign right-handed pitcher Brandon Maurer
Florida Marlins right-hander Brandon Maurers will join the team in 2018.
Maurer will make his major league debut Monday in Washington against the Nationals, his first appearance since undergoing Tommy John surgery on June 26, 2018.
He’ll join the Marlins on their road trip in 2018 as part of a group that also includes lefty Jordan Martin.
Maurer, who will turn 36 in October, is coming off a career-high five wins, allowing just one earned run in five appearances.
He was 2-0 with a 2.69 ERA in 17 games last season with Tampa Bay.
Maurers also struck out 12 and walked just two batters in 13 innings in the season finale.
He was the Marlins’ designated hitter last season, hitting .267 with five homers, 14 RBI and nine stolen bases.
