The Marlins announced that first baseman Michael Morse will be activated after spending over a month on the disabled list with a finger injury.
Morse tweaked his back while rehabbing the injury, necessitating more time away from the team, but will make his return when Miami faces the Cubs in Chicago for the conclusion of a three-game series.
Before the injury, Morse was batting .211 with two home runs in 37 games for the Marlins.
In a corresponding move, the team will send pitcher Jarred Cosart down to the New Orleans Zephyrs in Triple A . Cosart lasted just 1.2 innings against the Cubs in a 7–2 loss on Saturday. Cubs rookie Kris Bryant hit two home runs, including a grand slam in the second inning that chased Cosart and pushed the score to 7–0.
