Chaz Roe, who pitched in 21 games last season for the Arizona Diamondbacks, signed a Minor League deal with the Miami Marlins. The 27-year old Roe will also be invited to Spring Training to compete for a spot in the Marlins’ bullpen. He was granted free agency by the Texas Rangers on February 5th and was picked up by Miami the following day.
Roe was a 2005 first round pick of the Colorado Rockies where he bounced around their organization without having been called up to the Majors. He was traded to the Seattle Mariners after the 2010 season. He spent a year with the M’s organization before being released in November 2011. The D’backs signed Roe in September 2012 and he finally made his Major League debut on July 1st, 2013. In 22 1/3 innings, he gave up 18 hits and three walks while striking out 24. He was claimed off waivers by the Rangers on November 1st.
We wish Chaz Roe the best of luck in Miami.
