Marlins Designate Chris Valaika For Assignment

The Marlins announced that they have activated infielder Chris Valaika from the 60-day disabled list, recalled him from his rehab stint and designated him for assignment.

Valaika, who turns 28 next month, has been on the disabled list for most of the season after undergoing wrist surgery in May. When he was healthy, he produced just a .219/.261/.344 batting line in 70 plate appearances for the Marlins.

The Fish are the second big league team with which Valaika has appeared, as he also saw 67 plate appearances with the Reds from 2010-11. The former third-round pick has a .260/.295/.366 batting line over parts of five seasons at the Triple-A level.
