Riddle (shoulder) was activated from the disabled list Wednesday and optioned to Triple-A New Orleans, Matthew DeFranks of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Riddle had already been playing for New Orleans on a rehab assignment while recovering from shoulder tendinitis but will now continue to do so as a normal member of the team. The 26-year-old played 70 games in his big-league debut for the Marlins last season, hitting just .250/.282/.355. He could be up in Miami in a utility role later this season but shouldn't be considered a significant fantasy asset if and when that happens.
Riddle (shoulder) is set to continue his rehab Monday at Triple-A New Orleans, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.
Riddle was able to play seven innings at Double-A Jacksonville on Friday and has been moved up to Triple-A, where he'll face his final challenge before returning to the Marlins. He's expected to return to the starting lineup in the near future.
Riddle (shoulder) played seven innings for Double-A Jacksonville on Friday and is expected to play a full nine innings for the affiliate Saturday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
The shortstop is closing in on his return to the Marlins' lineup. Riddle doesn't offer much upside with his bat, but he should resume starting duties once he's activated from the disabled list as Miguel Rojas' brief hot streak has already cooled.
Riddle will begin a rehab assignment at High-A Jupiter on Tuesday, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.
Riddle will play in a handful of rehab games before the Marlins consider bringing him off the disabled list, making a return at some point next week seem attainable. Once he's back in full health, Riddle will likely serve as a reserve option for the Miami infield.
Riddle (shoulder) played in an extended spring training game Saturday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
It's a positive sign for Riddle's recovery from right shoulder tendinitis that he has progressed to the point of logging some at-bats and work in the field, albeit in a controlled setting. He'll likely appear in at least a few more extended spring games before kicking off a rehab assignment soon after. The Marlins don't have a clear timetable for the shortstop's activation from the 10-day disabled, but a return at some point in May seems realistic.
