Marlins designated RHP Jon Rauch for assignment.
The veteran right-hander's short tenure with the Marlins comes to a close after just 16 2/3 innings. During that time, he compiled a 7.56 ERA, 1.80 WHIP and 15/7 K/BB ratio. Despite the poor start, Rauch should have no problem attracting interest from other teams starved for bullpen depth.

Jon Rauch insisted on Sunday that his elbow is fine.
Rauch hung a slider that turned into the game-winning homer by Russell Martin in Sunday's loss. Rauch dealt with a minor case of inflammation last week, but he believes he's past it. The big righty also disputed the team's claim that there is debris in his elbow. After taking an anti-inflammatory medication, he said he's fine. Earlier this season, it seemed likely that he would steal the closer's job from Frank Francisco. Rauch is nowhere near that position in the hierarchy anymore.

Jon Rauch will have his right elbow examined Friday to determine if he needs to be placed on the disabled list.
The Mets think he merely has inflammation, but it could be bad enough to keep him out for a couple weeks. If Rauch does have to go on the DL, Jeremy Hefner will stick around as a long reliever.
