Hechavarria placed on 15-day disabled list
MIAMI — Injuries continue to pile up for the Marlins.
The club now will be without shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria for at least a couple of weeks. On Thursday, the 24-year-old was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow contusion.
Miami has selected the contract of infielder Nick Green from Triple-A New Orleans. To make 40-man roster space for Green, Nathan Eovaldi was transferred to the 60-day disabled list.
Eovaldi, initially projected to be the No. 2 starter, is out with right shoulder inflammation.
The Marlins are set to open a four-game series at Cincinnati on Thursday. Hechavarria was examined by team doctors in Miami, and tests revealed the elbow bruise.
