Marlins Take LHP Zach Kroenke in Rule 5 Draft

              The Marlins continue to stockpile arms, selecting left-handed pitcher Zach Kroenke in Thursday's Rule 5 Draft. Kroenke, 24, belonged to the Yankees' organization and went 6-0 last season at Double A Trenton in 37 relief appearances.Zach

              Kroenke will be placed on the Marlins' 40-man roster, taking the place of catcher Matt Treanor, who was released late Wednesday night. Jim Fleming, the Marlins' vice president of player development, said Kroenke would compete for a bullpen spot on the big-league roster.

              Kroenke pitched at the University of Nebraska and was the Yankees' fifth-round draft pick in 2005. Fleming said he throws a slider, change-up and average fastball, with some deception in his delivery.
