Hensley reinstated, Wood optioned
The Marlins on Tuesday reinstated reliever Clay Hensley off the bereavement list, and optioned reliever Tim Wood to Triple-A New Orleans.
Hensley, 30, learned after last Friday’s loss to the Nationals that his father had passed away. The right-hander went on the bereavement list, and he returns after missing the required three days.
By rule, players on bereavement must miss a minimum of three days and a maximum of seven days. The Marlins were off on Monday, before opening a three-game set with the Giants on Tuesday.
In his last two appearances, Hensley has been on a roll. He has struck out 13 in five scoreless innings. The right-hander has thrown 12 2/3 innings this season, and he’s struck out 21, while walking five.
Wood has appeared in eight games, with his last outing on April 27 against the Padres.
