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.
