The Marlins have activated third baseman Martin Prado from the 10-day disabled list and designated 1B/OF Tyler Moore for assignment, MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro reports. Prado started the year on the DL with a strained right hamstring, an injury sustained during the World Baseball Classic.

Moore, 30, had three singles and a double in 11 trips to the plate to begin the year for the Marlins. Though Moore has otherwise struggled over parts of five seasons in the majors, he’ll probably draw some interest as a potential bench bat. He’ll likely clear waivers.

Derek Dietrich has started 10 of the Marlins’ 12 games at third base with Miguel Rojas getting the other two starts. Both will be used in back-up roles with Prado back in the mix.
