This marks the second time that the Marlins have designated the 34-year-old Green for assignment this season. Green cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A following his first DFA. The infielder is hitting .236/.302/.327 for the Fish in 65 plate appearances, and he's gone just 4-for-27 since being selected to the big league roster for a second time this season.
Lucas is being called up to a Major League roster for the first time despite being 31 years of age. The Dartmouth product was an eighth-round pick by the Royals back in 2004. In 196 plate appearances for Triple-A New Orleans this season, the versatile infielder is hitting .304/.354/.453 — a marked improvement from his career .265/.337/.403 Triple-A batting line.
