Marlins calling up Brad Penny to start tonight against the Reds

We heard earlier this week that the Marlins were thinking about calling up 36-year-old Brad Penny to fill the rotation spot of 23-year-old Jacob Turner, who was recently designated for assignment and swapped to the Cubs. The speculation is now confirmed, as the team has announced that Penny will start tonight against the Reds.

Penny signed a minor league contract with the Marlins in June before posting a 3.05 ERA and 30/9 K/BB ratio in 38 1/3 innings across five starts between Double-A Jacksonville and Triple-A New Orleans. He hasn’t pitched in majors since 2012 as a member of the Giants, when he put up an ugly 6.11 ERA over 22 relief appearances.
