Marlins option Below to Triple-A New Orleans

MIAMI -- Shortly after the Marlins lost, 5-2, to the Nationals on Sunday afternoon in 10 innings, the team made a roster move.

Left-handed reliever Duane Below was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans. The corresponding move will be made before Miami opens the second half on Friday at Milwaukee. At that time, right-hander Chad Qualls will be reinstated from the paternity list.

Qualls was excused from the team on Saturday and Sunday to be with his wife, who is having a baby.

Below was brought up only for the short term.

The southpaw didn't see action in either game. He did make two appearances for the Marlins in May. Below has spent most of the season at New Orleans, where he has made 15 starts and is 6-5 with a 2.31 ERA.
