CLEVELAND – The Indians on Monday sold side-arm reliever Adam Cimber to the Marlins for $ 100,000, and Miami named right-hander Jose Urena for assignment.
In 2018 and 2019 the Marlins Opening Day starter, Urena, spent six seasons with the Marlins and stayed with him longer than any other active player. He went 0–3 with a 5.40 ERA last season, when he had a salary of $ 3.75 million and earned $ 1,388,889 in prepayments. He was estimated to have a salary of around $ 4 million for 2021.
Cimber went 0-1 with a 3.97 ERA in 14 matches last season for Cleveland, which acquired the right-hander from the San Diego Padres in 2018, which brought All-Star closer Brad Hand to the Indians.
Simber, 30, went 6-7 with a 4.30 ERA in 2½ seasons with the Indians in 6-7 seasons. He was 6-3 in 2019, when he won 68 games.
San Diego selected him in the ninth round of the 2013 amateur draft. He pitched 42 matches for the Padres in 2018 before being traded to Cleveland.
