Marlins call up Yelich, Marisnick
The future is starting now for a couple of the Marlins’ top prospects.
After beating the Rockies, 3-1, on Monday night at Coors Field, the Marlins made some eye-opening moves. They selected the contracts of outfielders Christian Yelich and Jake Marisnick from Double-A Jacksonville.
The counter move, the Marlins optioned second baseman Derek Dietrich and center fielder Marcell Ozuna to Jacksonville.
Donovan Solan and Ed Lucas are likely to handle second base. And Marisnick and Yelich likely will see playing time in center and left field.
