Not a good day for the Marlins so far.
Shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria, who injured his right elbow making a throw before the game Wednesday, has been placed on the 15-day disabled list. The Marlins have called up veteran Nick Green, 34, to replace him. Green was hitting .293 with a home run and four RBI in 11 games at Triple A New Orleans.
The Marlins also announced that right-hander Nathan Eovaldi, the center piece in their trade that sent Hanley Ramirez to the Dodgers, has been transferred to the 60-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation. Eovaldi had a pretty good spring before saying he felt pain in his right bicep area. When we talked to him during the Marlins home opener he seemed optimistic he might be cleared to begin throwing soon. This is an obvious setback.
