In what Nick Green has called disappointing move, the Miami Marlins will designate the journeyman infielder for assignment.  The Marlins need the spot on the 25-man roster, and Green is the only logical choice for a designation.  Adeiny Hechavarria is set to return from the DL today. According to Joe Fisaro of MLB.com, Hechavarria will likely be reinstated today in his first day of eligibility to come off the DL.  The Marlins may choose not to reinstate him, but in all likelihood, they will and they will need a roster spot.  Fisaro says the team will also option Brad Hand and potentially select the contract of Matt Diaz. Green has been playing well for the Marlins of late, but that does not appear to be a good enough basis for the team to keep him on the Major League roster.  In seven games this season, he is hitting .292/.321/.417.  Throughout his eight-year Major League career, Green is a .237/.304/.349 hitter.  The 34-year old never got a real shot at playing every day. Hechevarria's return means the Marlins will get one of their younger players back.  He is just 24 years old and has some decent upside.  He has only played in 55 Major League games, but at time he has looked good.  At other time, though, Hechavarria has struggled.  The Marlins are hoping that once he returns, he can get more consistent at-bats and he can truly be evaluated.
