DENVER (AP) — The Miami Marlins have acquired rookie left-handed reliever Hunter Cervenka from the Atlanta Braves for two minor league players.

The Braves sent infielder Anfernee Seymour and left-hander Michael Mader to the Braves on Saturday.

Cervenka is expected to join the Marlins in Denver on Sunday. He was 1-0 with a 3.18 ERA in 50 appearances for the Braves, and opponents were hitting .175 against him.

The Marlins are in contention for an NL wild-card spot.

"We wanted to deepen our bullpen and give Donnie options," president of baseball operations Michael Hill said of manager Don Mattingly. "We wanted to give him as many weapons as possible."
