The @Marlins option OF Jake Marisnick and RHP Anthony Desclafani to Triple-A New Orleans; reinstate OF Christian Yelich from 15-day DL.
— MLBRosterMoves (@MLBRosterMoves) June 29, 2014
Yelich, in his second Major League season he is batting .259 with six home runs and 24 RBI's. He only had 240 plate appearances last season and he batted .288 with four homers and 16 RBI's. Yelich is an upgrade over Marisnick at the plate which will boost the Marlins batting order. They have a .254 AVG (15th), .320 OBP (12th), and a .386 SLG (14th). Yelich will be able to increase those numbers to give the pitchers the run support they need.
