ST. LOUIS — Second-base depth is becoming an issue with the Marlins.
On Friday, Miami placed Derek Dietrich around the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Mondy, with a right wrist anxiety.
Outfielder Jake Marisnick was recalled coming from Triple-A New Orleans to fill Dietrichs list spot.
Dietrich last played on Tuesday and went hitless in four at-bats against the Phillies. The left-handed-hitting infielder felt a few discomfort taking a practice swing while on deck. He stayed in the game, but on Wed in the batting cage, this wrist bothered him adequate to get an MRI exam, which usually revealed the strain.
While in the on-deck eliptical taking a practice swing, this individual felt something, director Mike Redmond said. The next day, he explained swinging in the cage, this individual took quite a few swings and it also blew up on him. He got that checked out. Had an MRI, therefore we put him on the Defensive line.
Dietrich opened the season as the Marlins starting second baseman. He was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans on June 3, shortly before Rafael Furcal came from the DL. But when Furcal was affixed to the DL on 06 22 with a left hamstring strain, Dietrich was called back up.
Since returning, Dietrich is 4-for-28 (.143) with just one double and an RBI.
For the season, Dietrich is definitely hitting .228 with a .326 on-base percentage, using six doubles, two triples, five home runs and 19 RBIs. Hes had his challenges defensively, committing 10 errors from second base, and one miscalculation at third.
Donovan Solano and Impotence problems Lucas have been handling second base of late.
The Marlins hope to get shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria again on Monday for the string opener at Arizona.
Hechavarria (proper triceps strain) went on the actual DL on June 30, retroactive to June 21.
The plans for Hechavarria to play two rehab-assignment games for Class A Jupiter about Friday and Saturday, and travel to Arizona on Saturday. Barring a setback, he should be reinstated on Monday.
