Hechavarria reinstated, Diaz selected

PHILADELPHIA — The Marlins on Thursday reinstated shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria from the 15-day disabled list, and selected the contract of Matt Diaz.

Hechavarria returns to the lineup after being out with a bruised right elbow. Diaz was at Triple-A New Orleans, and the veteran will provided a right-handed bat off the bench.

To make roster room, infielder Nick Green was designated for assignment, and lefty Brad Hand was optioned to New Orleans.

Hechavarria returned to lineup on the first day he was eligible to come off the DL.

Diaz, a career outfielder, has been learning first base. He is an option to start at first base against left-handed pitching.
