Axelrod was reassigned to minor league camp Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Axelrod spent most of 2015 in the minor leagues where he went 6-8 with a 4.68 ERA at Triple-A Louisville. He had a brief stint with the Reds in which he was roughed up to the tune of a 7.30 ERA over 12.3 innings pitched. The 30-year-old has only pitched in 11 MLB games over the past two seasons, and it is unlikely that he sees significant time with the Marlins in 2016.

Axelrod signed a minor league deal with the Marlins that includes an invite to Spring Training, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports.

EDGE Analysis

Axelrod spent the last two seasons with the Reds, where he logged just over 30 innings in the majors. Over 105.2 frames at the Triple-A level, the right-hander posted a 4.68 ERA and 5.88 K/9. He'll look to catch on in a new organization, and the Marlins will benefit from a low-risk deal.

Axelrod cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Louisville on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Axelrod was designated for assignment Tuesday to create room on the 40-man roster for Ramon Cabrera, and he'll now head back to the minors. Though he worked exclusively out of the bullpen in the majors, Axelrod has served mostly as a start in Triple-A and will likely rejoin the rotation there.

Axelrod cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Louisville late Thursday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

The Reds had already reassigned Axelrod to the minors a couple weeks earlier, but Thursday's transaction will drop him from the team's 40-man roster. Axelrod figures to serve as a member of the rotation at Louisville for most of this season, but his lack of a 40-man spot may make it difficult for him to earn his way back to the big leagues.

The Reds optioned Axelrod to Triple-A Louisville on Monday.

Axelrod was on the fringe of the Reds' rotation battle, but with good performances this spring from Jason Marquis, Paul Maholm, Tony Cingrani and Anthony DeSclafani, Axelrod didn't have much of a chance.

Axelrod is likely done for the season, the Associated Press reports.

This should come as no surprise after he left his last start with a strained right oblique, which often take a few weeks or more for pitchers to return from. Those in single-season leagues can feel comfortable dropping Axelrod at this point.

Axelrod left Monday's start against the Cardinals with a strained right oblique, John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Axelrod hasn't officially been ruled out from making his next scheduled start Saturday against the Brewers, but because oblique injuries often result in medium- to long-term absences for pitchers, his chances of taking the ball don't look especially promising. He was replaced in the first inning of Monday's start by David Holmberg, who would seem to be the Reds' top option to step into the rotation for Axelrod if he's indeed unavailable for his next turn.

Axelrod was pulled from Monday's start against the Cardinals in the first inning due to an undisclosed injury, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports.

Axelrod lasted just seven pitches and recorded one out before he left the mound. A report on Axelrod's condition should be relayed after the game, but his early removal is an ominous sign for what was shaping up to be a two-start week. Fortunately for the Reds, the September roster expansion should leave the team will plenty of arms available out of the bullpen to cover the remaining 8.2 innings of Monday's game.
