CLEVELAND -- The Marlins have placed outfielder Emilio Bonifacio on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left thumb and have called up infielder Donovan Solano from Triple A New Orleans. The Marlins have also recalled outfielder Chris Coghlan to fill the roster spot left vacant by first baseman Gaby Sanchez, who was optioned on Saturday.
Bonifacio's hand was so bruised and swollen on Saturday that he was unable to ball his hand into a fist.
Solano made a favorable impression on manager Ozzie Guillen in spring training and was one of the last players cut. Solano would become the 12th player from Colombia to appear in the majors.
Solano, who is primarily a singles hitter, is batting .262 this season. Coghlan is hitting. 275 with New Orleans.
