JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Miami Marlins announced a series of transactions that impact their Double-A affiliate Jacksonville Suns roster prior today’s game against the Biloxi Shuckers at Bragan Field at 7:05 p.m.
Right-handed relief pitcher Kyle Fischer has been transferred from Jacksonville to Single-A Greensboro. Fischer made one appearance for the Suns, allowing five runs on four hits during Sunday’s loss to the Chattanooga Lookouts.
Right-handed relief pitcher Craig Stem has been transferred from Triple-A New Orleans to Jacksonville. Stem did not make an appearance for the Zephyrs, and with the Suns in 20 appearances this season is 1-1 with a 1.55 ERA in 29 innings pitched.
