MIAMI (AP) -Byung-Hyun Kim was claimed off waivers by the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday, after the Florida Marlins placed the right-hander on waivers.
Kim, who struck out a career-high 10 against the Rockies on Wednesday, was 6-5 with a 4.63 ERA with the Marlins and Rockies. Florida acquired him from Colorado on May 13, in a trade for reliever Jorge Julio.
The 28-year-old Kim spent his first four-plus seasons in Arizona, mostly as a reliever. He saved 70 games from 1999-2002 in Arizona, and was part of the team that won the World Series in 2001. He fell out of favor after the team put him in the starting rotation in 2003, and was traded on May 29, 2003 to the Boston Red Sox for Shea Hillenbrand.
The Diamondbacks also claimed infielder Jeff Cirillo off waivers from the Minnesota Twins on Friday.
The Marlins started Friday's game against the Houston Astros with 24 players and will make a roster move on Saturday to replace Kim.
