Carrollo recalled from Triple-A
The Marlins added some outfield depth on Wednesday, recalling Brett Carroll from Triple-A New Orleans to replace Nick Johnson’s roster spot.
Johnson was placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Aug. 17, after Tuesday night’s game. The first baseman has been nursing a right hamstring strain.
Carroll has already appeared in 67 games for the Marlins this season, being used as a defensive replacement and spot starter against certain left-handed pitchers.
With the Marlins, he’s hitting .250 with three home runs and nine RBIs.
For New Orleans, Carroll is .233 with five homers and 12 RBIs.
