Marlins recall Carter Capps from Triple A to take Caminero's spot in bullpen

ATLANTA -- Carter Capps, the player the Marlins acquired in the Logan Morrison trade with Seattle, was recalled from Triple A New Orleans Wednesday morning to replace Arquimedes Caminero's vacated spot in the bullpen.

Capps struggled early on this spring as the Marlins were adjusting his delivery, adding a bit of a turn to it to provide more balance. He was sent down to the minors at the start of the season to work on it. 

He did well, going 0-1 with a 1.64 ERA in seven appearances for New Orleans. He had 17 strikeouts and just six walks in 11 innings of relief work. 

Capps has a power arm. According to Fangraphs, his average career fastball velocity is 96.4 miles per hour.

"I'm trying to get a little more use out of my legs, like I used to pitch," Capps said back in March. "When I went to Seattle, I changed some things around. I'm trying to get back to pitching the way I used to pitch."
