In corresponding moves, the Marlins called up infielder Nick Green to take Hechavarria's spot on the roster. Miami also transferred Nathan Eovaldi to the 60-day disabled list.
Hechavarria suffered his injury during pre-game warm ups on Wednesday. It's not clear how long he'll be sidelined due to the contusion. In his absence the Marlins are expected to some combination of Green, Chris Valaika and Donovan Solano to man shortstop.
The Marlins acquired Hechavarria from the Toronto Blue Jays in the winter fire sale that also included Jose Reyes, Emilio Bonifacio, Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle. Prior to his injury, the 24-year-old was hitting .184/.231/.286 with one triple and home run over 52 plate appearances.
