The Miami Marlins signed the right hand Bryan mitchell with a minor league contract. He has been assigned to Triple-A Jacksonville, where he already made his first appearance over the weekend.
Right-hander Mitchell pitched in the majors every year from 2014-18, spending the first four years with the New York Yankees before posting his most significant seasonal workload (73 innings) with the San Diego Padres in 2018
He showed some intriguing raw stuff, but overall he struggled with prospect results, driving a 5.15 / 5.20 SIERA ERA in 171 1/3 innings accumulated. He hasn’t pitched in the majors since then, bouncing between some organizations in minor league deals.
The 30-year-old signed an off-roster deal with the Philadelphia Phillies during the offseason. He spent the year with Triple-A Lehigh Valley, pitching 28 1/3 innings of 6.04 ERAs with worse-than-average strikeout and walk rates (15.7% and 12.6%, respectively).

The Phils released him a couple of weeks ago. Mitchell has worked exclusively out of the bullpen this season, but has vast experience as a starter and offers the Marlins a multi-inning relief / swing option for the high minors down the stretch.
