Baker on DL, Petersen recalled

The Marlins on Saturday placed catcher John Baker on the 15-day disabled list, retro to May 13, with a right flexor muscle strain.

Outfielder Bryan Petersen was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans.

The Marlins added catching depth on Thursday when Brett Hayes was recalled from Triple-A.

In Spring Training, Baker was bothered by a right forearm muscle strain, and he missed considerable time.

Ronny Paulino has been playing mroe of late behind the plate. Paulino initially was platooning with Baker.

Outfielder John Raynor, who was returned to the Marlins after being a Rule 5 claim with the Pirates, is now playing for Triple-A New Orleans. Raynor had been seeing some action in extended spring in Jupiter.
