Marlins acquire right-hander Darren McCaughan from Mariners for cash

MIAMI (AP) — The Miami Marlins have acquired right-hander Darren McCaughan from Seattle for cash after the Mariners placed him on waivers Wednesday. The 27-year-old McCaughan has pitched in five major league games, posting a 7.07 ERA in 14 innings. He made one start in 2021. McCaughan spent most of last season with Seattle’s Triple-A Tacoma affiliate, where he made 25 starts and went 7-8 with a 5.83 ERA. He threw one complete game and struck out 130 batters over 139 innings. To open a roster spot for McCaughan, the Marlins designated outfielder Peyton Burdick for assignment.
