ATLANTA -- The Marlins optioned right-hander Arquimedes Caminero to Triple-A New Orleans following Tuesday night's 1-0 win against the Braves at Turner Field. Miami will announce a corresponding move Wednesday morning.
Right-handers Carter Capps and Henry Rodriguez are possibilities to fill the spot Caminero vacated. If Rodriguez gets the call, the Marlins would need to make room for him on the 40-man roster.
Caminero suffered his first career loss on Monday when he surrendered a walk-off two-run homer to Evan Gattis in the 10th inning of a 4-2 Braves victory. The reliever was recalled from New Orleans on April 9, and he owns a 13.50 ERA in five appearances.
Capps, 23, is 0-1 with a 1.64 ERA in seven appearances with the Zephyrs. Rodriguez, 27, has an 0.79 ERA in seven appearances at New Orleans this season.
