The Marlins announced on Monday that third baseman Martin Prado has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring. Shortstop J.T. Riddle has been recalled from Triple-A New Orleans.
Prado, 33, started the season with a hamstring injury and reaggravated it in the seventh inning on Sunday against the Mets. Through 73 plate appearances, he was hitting .290/.315/.406 with a pair of homers and six RBI.
This will be Riddle’s second stint in the majors thus far. The 25-year-old struggled in 17 plate appearances last month, hitting .143 with a homer and three RBI.
On Sunday, the Marlins signed utilityman Mike Aviles to a minor league contract, adding to their now-thin infield depth.
