The Marlins announced they’ve reinstated right-hander Elieser Hernández from the 60-day injured list to start tonight’s game against the Pirates. Infielder Luis Marté was designated for assignment to open active and 40-man roster spots.
Hernández hasn’t pitched since April 3. He left that start, his first of the year, with biceps inflammation that ultimately required a two-month absence. It was a disappointing beginning to the year for a hurler who earned himself a season-opening rotation spot with a quietly stellar 2020 campaign. Hernández made six starts for the Fish last season and worked to a 3.16 ERA over 25 2/3 innings, backed up by excellent strikeout and walk rates (32.1% and 4.7%, respectively).
