Marlins Designate Brian Barden For Assignment

The Marlins have designated infielder Brian Barden for assignment, tweets Joe Capozzi of The Palm Beach Post. The move frees up for a roster spot for infielder Donnie Murphy, who was summoned from Triple-A.

Barden, 29, hit just .179/.281/.179 in 32 plate appearances for Florida this season, and is a career .211/.268/.303 hitter in close to 200 big league plate appearances. He played every infield spot except first base, but it wasn't enough to keep him with the team.
