Marlins place OF Chris Coghlan on the 15-day disabled list; LoMo set to make debut Sunday

NEW YORK -- After winning a 20-inning marathon on Saturday, the Marlins began the day Sunday by placing outfielder Chris Coghlan on the 15-day disabled list and activating first baseman Logan Morrison from the 60-day disabled list.

Coghlan, who had a 10-game hitting streak snapped on Tuesday, has right calf nerve irritation according to the Marlins. He was hurt earlier this week, but starter Saturday's game in center field and played eight innings.

Morrison, returning from a second knee surgery, hit .179 during his 16-game rehab assignment with Single A Jupiter and Double A Jacksonville. He was pulled after making just one at-bat Saturday in Birmingham.

The Marlins had said Morrison would likely rejoin the team in Miami Monday, but he is here in the Big Apple and will make his debut today against the Mets. Morrison hasn't played in a big league game since last July 28th. He hit .230 with 11 homers and 36 RBI in 93 games last season.

The Marlins also announced their 40-man roster is now set at 40.
