Wallach went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in Sunday's 6-0 win over the Reds. Wallach delivered a three-run blast over the fence in left center during the third inning. He'd been hitless in his previous four games leading up to the series finale but managed to push his RBI total to five while recording his second multi-hit game of the season. The 26-year-old has gone 7-for-41 through 13 games this season for the Marlins.
Wallach was called up by the Marlins on Saturday. Wallach has a career .119/.159/.143 line in 15 major-league games and hit just .224/.324/.333 in 44 games for Triple-A New Orleans. He's likely the third catcher behind J.T. Realmuto and Bryan Holaday, though he wouldn't have much fantasy value even in a larger role.
Wallach was sent down to Triple-A New Orleans on Thursday, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports. Wallach was taken off the 40-man roster in order to make room for J.T. Realmuto, who was reinstated from the paternity list in a corresponding move. Across 34 plate appearances with the Marlins this year, Wallach is hitting just .129/.182/.161 and doesn't provide much fantasy value in any format.
Wallach was called up to Miami on Monday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. The Marlins need a second catcher with J.T. Realmuto on the paternity list. Wallach will likely be stuck behind Bryan Holaday and will probably only be up for a short period of time, as Realmuto will be out for at most three games.
Wallach was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans on Tuesday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. Wallach split time with Bryan Holaday behind the plate to start the season, but the 26-year-old could only produce four hits in 31 at-bats (.129 batting average). With J.T. Realmuto returning from the disabled list, Wallach is no longer needed on the big-league roster, so he'll retreat to the minors to act as organizational depth.
