Byung-Hyun Kim to be activated

At least that is the plan.

Newly acquired right-hander Byung-Hyun Kim is expected to be available to pitch today when he joins the team after being acquired from Colorado in a trade for Jorge Julio.

"It's one struggling pitcher for another struggling pitcher,'' Rockies GM John Dowd told reporters.

If the Marlins have a specific assignment for Kim, they didn't share that Monday other than to say he can be used as a starter and reliever.

Kim won't be used as the starter today, that's for sure.  He could possibly make an relief appearance.  How the club is going to use him is still a bit of a mystery.

To place Kim on the 25-man roster the club needed to make a roster move.
