Logan Kensing won’t be making the trip to Chicago – the Marlins traded him yesterday to the Washington Nationals for minor league reliever Kyle Gunderson.
Gunderson will be assigned to A Jupiter, where the righty will continue to develop in the hopes of one day getting into the Marlins bullpen. Gunderson currently has a 2-0 record with a 2.84 ERA in 5 relief appearances.
Kensing, however, had fallen out of favor this season giving up 8 runs in 7 1/3 innings pitched. Last season he posted a 4.33 ERA with a 3-1 record as he provided crucial relief throughout the season coming back from injury.
