The Marlins announced via their twitter that they have placed Adeiny Hechavarria on the 10-day disabled list with an oblique strain. They have recalled infielder J.T. Riddle from Triple-A New Orleans.
Hechavarria had started the season 4-for-20 at the plate. The Marlins will miss him most in the field, where he has garnered a reputation as a spectacular defensive player. Miguel Rojas will likely take on the bulk of playing time at shortstop in his absence.
Riddle is the 12th ranked prospect in the Marlins organization according to MLB Pipeline. The 25-year-old can play all infield positions outside of first base. He started the season with the New Orleans Baby Cakes where he went 6-for-14 with a stolen base in three games. Riddle slashed .276/.326/.366 in 2016 split across Triple-A and Double-A.
