Tazawa, 31, has had a rough season with the Marlins. He had two particularly rough days on Tuesday (three runs in one-third of an inning) and Wednesday (three runs in one inning) against the Dodgers. He carries a 9.00 ERA with a 24/13 K/BB ratio in 20 innings.
There’s a decent chance Tazawa clears waivers, so the Marlins could then send him down to Triple-A and keep him as bullpen depth.
The Marlins signed Tazawa to a two-year, $12 million contract in December 2016.
