The wheeling and dealing continues for the Marlins as they shuffle their roster in search for more pitching depth.
Tinoco, 26, is being added to Miami’s 40-man roster, which stands at 38, and he will report to the organization’s alternate training site, the Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium complex in Jupiter, Fla. He provides MLB experience.
A native of Venezuela, Tinoco appeared in 24 big league games, all in relief, for Colorado in 2019. He was 0-3 with a 4.75 ERA in 36 innings, with 28 strikeouts and 22 walks.
Smith, 25, was Miami’s 11th-round pick from the University of Mississippi in 2016. Smith split time at Class A Advanced Jupiter and Double-A Jacksonville in 2019, combining for a 3-2 record and 4.54 ERA in 41 2/3 innings. He struck out 46 and walked 24.
Tinoco initially signed with the Blue Jays as a non-drafted free agent in 2011. He was primarily a starter until 2018, before transitioning to the bullpen.
Tinoco has 682 innings in the Minor Leagues, to go with a 35-53 record with a 4.71 ERA in 160 total games, with 120 starts.
