Miami Marlins shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria was activated from the 15-day disabled list Thursday after missing two weeks with an elbow bruise.
The 24-year-old is batting just .184 this season.
The team also recalled outfielder Matt Diaz from Triple-A New Orleans and designated infielder Nick Green for assignment.
Diaz, 35, is coming off a season in which he batted .222 with two home runs in 118 plate appearances for the Atlanta Braves last season.
Green, 34, was hitting .321 with one home run and three RBI in 34 plate appearances with the Marlins.
