The Marlins announced on Sunday that shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left oblique. Shortstop prospect J.T. Riddle has been recalled from Triple-A New Orleans to take his spot on the roster.

It’s not yet known exactly when Hechavarria suffered his injury. He was hitting a meager .200/.238/.200 through five games to start the season.

Riddle, 25, is the Marlins’ 12th-best prospect, according to MLB Pipeline. He started off the season well, registering a double, five singles, an RBI, a stolen base, and two runs scored in 14 plate appearances at Triple-A. Riddle figures to share time at shortstop with Miguel Rojas while Hechavarria is out.

Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the Padres will place outfielder Franchy Cordero on the 10-day disabled list and activate outfielder Hunter Renfroe from the DL on Monday.

Cordero, 23, has been slumping, batting .140 with four extra-base hits in 47 plate appearances dating back to May 11. The Padres noticed that the forearm issue has been affecting his swing in recent games. Manager Andy Green said, “It was something where he could swing a certain way to manage it. But swinging that way was not him.”

Renfroe, 26, has been out since mid-April due to inflammation in his right elbow. He hit .200/.281/.440 in 57 PA prior to landing on the disabled list. Renfroe played in 10 rehab games with Triple-A El Paso.
