Martin Prado was told he would be unable to face his former team and as the Marlins end a four game series with the Yankees Prado will be on the bench again. Miami announced it placed Prado on the 15-day disabled list with a shoulder sprain and in the corresponding move recalled catcher Jhonatan Solano from Triple-A New Orleans.
Prado, 31, went down during Sunday's contest against the Rockies and has not been in the lineup since. The move is retroactive to June 15, and as a result, the Marlins will be able to activate Prado when he is healthy while adding catching depth to their bench. Prado is batting .272/.311/.370 to complement four home runs and 24 RBIs through 63 games. Donovan Solano and Derek Dietrich can play third base in Prado's absence.
Jhonatan Solano gives the Marlins an additional catcher after J.T. Realmuto was scratched from Wednesday's starting lineup with back pain. Realmuto was not available to pinch hit for Jeff Mathis in the ninth inning and Solano may receive a start or two if Realmuto is not entirely healthy. Jeff Mathis is starting behind the plate for the Marlins on Thursday night.
