The Marlins announced Friday that Jorge Alfaro was reinstated from the 7-day IL. He missed the minimum seven days with a concussion. Alfaro will be batting seventh and catching against his former team, the Phillies. Alfaro’s return should help solidify the Marlins lineup.
Wilkin Castillo was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans as the corresponding move. Castillo’s return to the major leagues after 10 seasons served as a heartwarming story and helped the Marlins sweep the Phillies on the road with a game-winning 2 RBI double in last Saturday’s contest.
