Marlins Designate Nick Green For Assignment

The Marlins have announced that Nick Green has been designated for assignment to clear roster space for Ed Lucas, according to Danny Knobler of CBS Sports (on Twitter).

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.
