Report: Marlins activate catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia off disabled list
Marlins catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia was taken off the disabled list on Wednesday, Marlins MLB.com beat reporter Joe Frisaro tweeted.
The news comes nearly three weeks after Saltalamacchia suffered a concussion on May 31 after he was hit in the catcher's mask by B.J. Upton's foul tip.
The 29-year-old, who won a World Series with the Red Sox last year, got off to a hot start this season but cooled off in May before his injury, batting .177/.258/.241 across 89 plate appearances.
At 36-35, the Marlins are behind only the Nationals for first place in the NL East.
Busy roster moves: Salty coming off DL, will catch Heaney tomorrow. Gregg replaces Jennings. Realmuto to Double-A #MarlinsSI WIRE: Report: Indians OF Michael Brantley could return Saturday from concussion
