Out for season, Slowey throws pain-free 'pen session

MIAMI -- Kevin Slowey has been on the disabled list since late July with right forearm tightness. While there wasn't any intention for him to return, Slowey did have an encouraging day Tuesday. He threw a 25-pitch pain-free bullpen session.

Slowey is eligible for arbitration next year, and it is unclear if he is part of the Marlins' plans.

Manager Mike Redmond noted that for Slowey's "peace of mind," he can head into the offseason confident he has thrown pain-free.

A veteran presence, Slowey opened the season as Miami's No. 2 starter. He posted a 3-6 mark with a 4.11 ERA in 20 appearances, with 14 starts.

Outfielder Marcell Ozuna, who has been out since late July because of left thumb surgery, has been taking batting practice the past few days. He's been cleared to hit and do some throwing and catching. It has not been decided if Ozuna will play Winter League ball in the Dominican Republic.

Ozuna will compete for a starting outfield spot in Spring Training. In 70 games, he batted .265 with three homers and 32 RBIs.
