The Marlins have actually had bullpen difficulty recently — due date pickup David Robertson has actually enabled 15 runs in 16 2/3 innings with Miami — and Moore provides another veteran arm down the stretch.

For the Guardians, putting Moore on waivers is absolutely nothing more than a wage dump.

Cleveland discharges some income and likewise opens a lineup area for a more youthful gamer as they play out the string.

The Marlins are 78-73 and part of a 5-team wild-card race with the Arizona Diamondbacks, Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds, and San Francisco Giants.
