Jose Lopez was just jettisoned by a major league team for the second time in the past month.
According to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, the Marlins have designated Lopez for assignment and recalled outfielder Bryan Peterson from Triple-A New Orleans.
Lopez signed a minor league contract with the Marlins after being released by the Rockies in early-June. He had just three hits over 29 at-bats during his brief time with Florida. The 27-year-old has a pathetic .203/.233/.288 batting line over 129 plate appearances this season and a measly .582 OPS since the start of the 2010 season.
In an interesting twist of fate, right-hander Chaz Roe, who the Rockies sent to the Mariners to acquire Lopez in December, was also designated for assignment earlier this week.
