Edgar Renteria and Mike Redmond joined the Marlins ever-growing list of injured players. Alex González will finally get a chance to show his skills at shortstop and off-season veteran signee Randy Knorr will back up at the catcher position.
The Marlins have placed Craig Counsell on the DL and called up Luis Castillo to take his spot on the Roster. Counsell was hit by a pitch and broke his jaw. Castillo was the starting second baseman last season, but lost his job due to inconsistency and the need to continue development in the minors. Castillo‘s main asset is his speed.
