Marlins make roster moves
The Marlins have made their first roster moves since the start of the season.
Infielder Emilio Bonifacio was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans, while reliever Jose Veras was designated for assignment.
The Marlins recalled right-hander Chris Leroux from Triple-A to fill in Veras’ spot in the bullpen. Outfielder Brett Carroll was activated off the 15-day disabled list.
Bonifacio was serving as a super utility player, but he is projected to be an every day second baseman. Now he goes to New Orleans, where he can play every day.
Carroll had been on the DL with a strained left oblique. He spent the past few days playing in rehab assignment games for Class A Jupiter.
