WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Former McCutcheon and Purdue star Nick Wittgren was recalled by the Miami Marlins Friday afternoon.
In a corresponding move, the Marlins also placed Odrisamer Despaigne on the 10-day DL with a right forearm strain.
Wittgren, a relief pitcher, began the season in Triple-A New Orleans after recovering from elbow surgery last September.
He has appeared in 86 career MLB games, posting a 7-4 record and 3.83 ERA.
