Marlins purchased the contract of INF Nick Green from Triple-A New Orleans.

Green was outrighted to the minors last week after the Marlins designated him for assignment, but he's back now because of the injury to Donovan Solano. The 34-year-old is hitting .321 (9-for-28) with one home run and three RBI in eight games with the Fish this season. The Marlins still have to clear a spot for him on the 40-man roster.

Nick Green will be designated for assignment prior to Thursday's game in order to clear a roster spot for Adeiny Hechavarria (elbow).

Green has batted .321 with a homer in eight games for the Fish, but his playing time would be very limited with Hechavarria back on the roster. He'll likely clear waivers, but he has the option of declaring free agency.

Nick Green was scratched from Monday's lineup with a sprained left thumb.

No word yet on the severity of the injury. Greg Dobbs will take his place in the lineup, but he's nursing a sore oblique. The Marlins may soon have to make a roster move.

Marlins purchased the contract of INF Nick Green from Triple-A New Orleans.

Green is hitting .344/.398/.603 with 12 home runs, 47 RBI and a 1.001 OPS at the Triple-A level, so it's not entirely a transaction of need. He'll function as general bench depth.
