Latest Update Marlins placed Derek Dietrich on 15-day disabled list with right wrist strain Fri Jul, 04, 04:05 PM
Has pretty good pop in his bat and is capable of playing several different positions. Generally hits for a good average. Can also run a little bit.
Flaws: : Could stand to improve his plate patience and, as a result, his walk/strikeout ratio. Needs to work on his table-setting ability in order to play every day.
Dietrich suffered a right wrist strain on Tuesday and is expected to miss at least two weeks before rejoining the impressive Marlins. Although he is hitting just .228 with five home runs and 17 RBI through 158 at-bats, he is expected to rejoin the big league club once deemed healthy enough to return. Analyst: Matthew Beck
With a lefty on the mound for Oakland, the Marlins are stacking right-handed hitters. That means Donovan Solano will get the nod over Dietrich for Sunday's action.Analyst: Howard Bender
Just dotting the i's and crossing the t's on business that was settled Saturday. The moves are now done and the rosters are set to move forward.Analyst: Howard Bender
Dietrich was batting .246 with five home runs and 16 RBI before he was sent down. He now comes back up to replace the brittle Rafael Furcal who had displaced him in the first place.Analyst: Howard Bender
