Marlins activated SS Adeiny Hechavarria from the 10-day disabled list.

Hechavarria is back after missing time with a strained oblique. J.T. Riddle has been optioned to Triple-A New Orleans in the corresponding roster move. Hechavarria is a .254 career hitter who offers little in the way of power and doesn't steal bases anymore. Even in deep leagues, he isn't an option.

Adeiny Hechavarria (oblique) has joined Double-A Jacksonville for a rehab assignment.

Hechavarria should be ready to rejoin the Marlins this weekend if he can avoid setbacks. The shortstop landed on the 10-day disabled list April 9 with a left oblique strain.
Apr 18 - 6:48 PM

Marlins placed SS Adeiny Hechavarria on the 10-day disabled list with a left oblique strain.

It's unclear when Hechavarria was injured, but oblique injuries typically sideline players for more than the minimum stay on the DL. J.T. Riddle has been recalled to take his roster spot and he figures to share shortstop with Miguel Rojas for a few weeks.
Apr 9 - 2:06 PM

Adeiny Hechavarria was scratched from Sunday's lineup with minor back soreness.

Hechavarria is still taking batting practice Sunday and is supposed to play Monday. He'll be fine.
Mar 26 - 10:27 AM

Adeiny Hechavarria went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer as the Marlins and Astros played to a 7-7 tie on Sunday.

Hechavarria was able to hold his own at the plate in 2014 and 2015, but he came in at just .236/.283/.311 in 508 at-bats last year. Fortunately for the Marlins, he's pretty well locked into the eighth spot in the order now after previously being viewed as a candidate to hit first or second. The team loves his defense, so his starting job is very secure.

Adeiny Hechavarria has returned to Marlins camp but will have to appear in court again Tuesday.

Hechavarria is testifying at the trial of Bartolo Hernandez and trainer Julio Estrada, who are facing conspiracy and alien smuggling charges. He expects his involvement with the trial to be over after Tuesday. "What’s going on with the court is not something I’m really worried about. I was requested to be there by the FBI, so obviously I was there. I said everything I knew," said Hechavarria.
Feb 19 - 11:12 AM

Adeiny Hechavarria is not in Marlins camp due to a legal situation that he is not named in.

There aren't any more details than that, but it sounds like Hechavarria should report soon.
Feb 17 - 1:41 PM

Marlins and SS Adeiny Hechavarria avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.35 million contract.

He was eligible for arbitration for the second time this winter. Hechavarria hit an ugly .236/.283/.311 in 2016 but provided his usual stellar defense.
Jan 13 - 2:28 PM

Adeiny Hechavarria got two hits on Saturday, which is one more than the rest of his Marlins teammates combined could manage.

He finished 2-for-3 with a double and a single. The Marlins were shut out on three hits, so it is odd that one of the league's worst hitters would get two of them. Even with the good game his line is a miserable .243/.278/.342 in 321 plate appearances. Hechavarria has never hit for any power but he could at least hold his own in the batting average category. He hit .281 last year and .271 in 2015.

Adeiny Hechavarria went 1-for-4 with an RBI triple in Wednesday's loss to the Tigers.

Hechavarria flew around the bases for his RBI triple off Daniel Norris in the second inning. Ichiro would subsequently drive him home with a single, but the Marlins would score just once more in the game as they fell by a score of 10-3. The 27-year-old shortstop owns a .243/.276/.340 triple-slash to pair with eight doubles, three homers and 24 RBI across 259 at-bats. He doesn't make for much of a fantasy option, even in deeper NL-only formats.

Adeiny Hechavarria is not in the Marlins' starting lineup Saturday against the Mets.

He's just getting a breather. Miguel Rojas will get the nod at shortstop and bat eighth. Hechavarria has started 47 of the Marlins' first 56 games.

Adeiny Hechavarria doubled in what proved to be the winning run in the eighth inning of Wednesday's contest against the Pirates.

Hechavarria scratched out a run against the normally-stingy Tony Watson with a double to center field. It was his only hit of the evening in four at-bats and only his 16th RBI of the campaign. He's been his standard lackluster self at the plate this year, hitting .251/.280/.339 with three homers and no stolen bases. As such, it's best to avoid him in almost all fantasy formats, if possible.

Making his first start of the year in the leadoff spot, Adeiny Hechavarria went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer against the Rays on Thursday.

Ichiro Suzuki was out of the lineup today, and manager Don Mattingly thought Hechavarria was a better choice than Derek Dietrich to lead off against a lefty. It worked out nicely, but even after today, Hechavarria has just a .285 OBP for the season. He'll likely continue to bat eighth for the most part.

Adeiny Hechavarria went 4-for-5 against the Brewers on Saturday night with his second homer of the season.

He pounced on a grooved two-strike fastball from Chase Anderson in the second inning, and although he reached base three more times, that home run marked his only run and RBI of the night. His big night ended a dreadful 3-for-29 stretch in his previous nine games. The 27-year-old shortstop is now hitting .222/.256/.347 in 78 plate appearances.
