The Miami Marlins acquired right-handed reliever John Curtiss from the Tampa Bay Rays in exchange for minor league infielder Evan Edwards on Wednesday.

Curtiss, 27, appeared in 17 regular-season games with the Rays in 2020, posting a 3-0 record with two saves and a 1.80 ERA. He struck out 25 batters and walked three in 25 innings.

In the postseason, he made three appearances and was 1-0, getting the win in Game 4 of the World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Dodgers won in six games.

Edwards, 23, played at North Carolina State before the Marlins selected him in the fourth round of the 2019 draft. In 73 games in the minor leagues, the first baseman has hit .281 with nine home runs and 50 RBIs.
