The Miami Marlins have re-signed pitcher Kevin Slowey to a minor league contract.
Slowey, 29, appeared in 20 games making 14 starts for the Marlins in 2013. He finished with 92 innings pitched, a 4.11 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP before going down with a strained right forearm.
If Slowey can prove to be healthy he has a good chance to returning to the Marlins rotation at some point in 2014. In his career Slowey holds a 42-35 record 4.60 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP.
#Marlins sign five to minor league deals: RHPs Kevin Slowey & Craig Westcott, LHP Jose Gonzalez, 2B/OF Jordany Valdespin and OF Joe Benson.
