JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Miami Marlins announced a series of transactions that impact their Double-A affiliate Jacksonville Suns roster prior to tonight’s game against the Mobile BayBears at Bragan Field at 7:05 p.m.
Infielder J.T. Riddle has been placed on the disabled list, retroactive to August 16, with a tooth infection. Riddle has played in 44 games for the Suns, hitting .323 with five homers and 20 RBI.
In corresponding moves, infielders Danny Black and Terrence Dayleg have been reinstated from Jacksonville’s disabled list to the active Suns roster.
Black was placed on the disabled list on June 19 with a right shoulder contusion. Black in 15 games with the Suns is hitting .286 (14-for-49) with six runs batted in.
Dayleg was placed on the disabled list on August 2 with a left thumb strain. Dayleg is hitting .215 with two home runs and 19 RBI in 2015.
Also yesterday left-handed relief pitcher Fabian Williamson was transferred from Jacksonville to Triple-A New Orleans. Williamson in 17 relief appearances was 1-0 with a 3.10 ERA in 20 and a third innings pitched.
Additionally, right-handed relief pitcher C.J. Robinson has been transferred from Jacksonville to High-A Jupiter. Robinson didn’t pitch during this stint with the Suns, who in early August pitched in one game, allowing two runs on two hits in two and two-thirds innings of work. Robinson has also pitched for Single-A Greensboro where he was 1-1 with a 2.00 ERA in seven appearances, and in Jupiter he had no wins or losses and a 2.84 ERA in 29 appearances and one start along with two saves.
The Suns roster now stands at 24 active players, and a revised roster is attached.
