Bostick was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans on Wednesday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. Bostick appeared in two games for the Marlins off the bench, grabbing a walk and an RBI double in his only plate appearances. He'll head to Triple-A, with Austin Dean heading the other way.
Bostick was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans on Monday, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports. Bostick will take the roster spot of Martin Prado (quad), who was sent to the disabled list in a corresponding roster move. The 25-year-old second baseman turned outfielder, who was acquired from the Pirates over the weekend, owns a solid .295/.351/.436 slash line in 78 games at the Triple-A level this season. He'll likely work as a utility player for the Marlins, though he could see some starts, given the lack of talent on the big-league roster.
Bostick was designated for assignment by the Pirates on Tuesday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. The Pirates needed to open up a spot on the 40-man for Buddy Boshers, who was claimed off waivers from the Astros on Tuesday, and Bostick was the roster casualty. The 25-year-old hit a respectable .295/.351/.436 across 78 games with Triple-A Indianapolis this season. He'll take a spin through waivers to determine where he lands.
Bostick was called up from Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday. Bostick has the ability to play second base and all around the outfield. He'll likely serve in a utility role in his time with the team. The 25-year-old has hit a solid .295/.351/.436 for Indianapolis so far this season and went 8-for-27 at the big-league level last year.
