• The Marlins filled the spot on their roster left by reliever A.J. Ramos (on the DL with right shoulder inflammation) with first baseman Justin Bour. Bour, a left-handed bat who owns a .320/.397/.559 line at Triple-A New Orleans, is making his third stint with the Marlins since his contract was selected for the first time on June 4. In 13 Major League games, Bour hit .300 with four RBIs and three walks.
The addition of Bour gives the Marlins some left-handed power off the bench, which has been neglected due to long games and an in-flux bullpen.
"We've been short [of hitters] for at least two of those long-inning games," manager Mike Redmond said. "It's tough but that's the way it goes ... actually helped us a lot."
• After Wednesday's 5-0 win, the Marlins placed starter Tom Koehler on the paternity list, which made room for the team to reinstate lefty Brad Hand from the disabled list. Koehler's wife was expected to give birth to their first child some time before Thursday's game.
Hand will make the start Thursday in the series finale against the Phillies. He was sidelined with a right ankle sprain on May 24, posted a 2.38 ERA and 2-0 record in six starts at Class A Advanced Jupiter and Triple-A New Orleans. In his most recent start on Sunday for the Zephyrs, he went 2 2/3 innings and gave up three runs on four hits, one of which was a homer.
