Former Twins lefthanded reliever Caleb Thielbar, who spent the 2016 season with the Saints, had his contract purchased by the Miami Marlins on Monday.

Thielber, 29, a Randolph, Minn., native, was 5-2 with four saves and a 2.39 ERA in 42 game for the Saints last season.

Thielbar appeared in 109 games for the Twins between 2013-15. He played in six games with the Twins in April of 2015 before being sent to Class AAA Rochester. In August 2015, he was claimed on waivers by the San Diego Padres and finished the season pitching for Class AAA El Paso.
