• Shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria is eligible to come off the disabled list on Thursday, and chances are he will be reinstated. The 24-year-old went on the DL on April 18 with a right elbow contusion. Hechavarria was scheduled to play in a rehab assignment game for Class A Jupiter on Wednesday night. Barring a setback, he will be brought to Philadelphia, and the Marlins will designate Nick Green for assignment.
"It's disappointing," Green said. "Everybody wants to be in the big leagues, and you've got to try to do the best you can when you get a chance. That's all I could do."
• The Marlins are expected to option left-hander Brad Hand to Triple-A New Orleans. A candidate to have his contract selected is Matt Diaz, who is playing first base at New Orleans.
• Catcher Rob Brantly sustained a cut on his right index finger, which is why he didn't start on Wednesday afternoon. Brantly should be ready in a day or two.
