Miami lost a pair of pitchers — Alex Sanabia and Josh Wall — to waiver claims. The Diamondbacks snatched Sanabia while the Angels acquired Wall.

While Wall was obtained from the Dodgers in the Ricky Nolasco trade in July and never pitched for the Marlins, Sanabia appeared in 28 games — 24 of them starts — in part of three seasons, going 8-10 with a 4.15 ERA.

Sanabia made 10 starts this season (3-7) for the Marlins before a groin injury in late May landed him on the disabled list, where he spent the remainder of the season. Due to shoulder injuries to Nathan Eovaldi and Henderson Alvarez in spring training, along with Jacob Turner’s spring training struggles that landed him in Triple A, Sanabia started the season in the Marlins rotation.

Wall -- along with Steven Ames and Angel Sanchez — was one of three pitching prospects the Marlins received from the Dodgers in the Nolasco trade. A former second-round draft pick for the Dodgers, Wall went 1-1 with a 3.27 ERA in 20 relief appearances at Triple A New Orleans after coming over in the trade.
