Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins have activated shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria from the 10-day disabled list and optioned shortstop J.T. Riddle to Triple-A New Orleans.

Hechavarria, 28, was dealing with a strained left oblique. He went on the DL batting .200/.238/.200 in his first 21 plate appearances.

Riddle, 25, hit a meager .143/.133/.357 in 17 plate appearances covering for Hechavarria. He did have a couple of cool moments, including getting his first major league hit on a check-swing on a pitch in the dirt and notching his first major league home run with a walk-off.
