Skipworth gets first call-up

NEW YORK — For much of Spring Training, Kyle Skipworth made a case to be on the Marlins’ Opening Day roster. Although he was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans last Saturday, the 23-year-old catcher is now headed to the big leagues.

The Marlins are calling the left-handed hitting catcher up to replace Casey Kotchman, who on Friday is being placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.
