Miami has placed starting shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria on the disabled list with a bruised right elbow suffered Wednesday during pregame warmups.

Like most of the Marlins he was off to a bad start, hitting just .184 in 14 games, but Hechavarria is around for his defense at shortstop and the Marlins’ unappealing fill-in options include Chris Valaika, Donovan Solano, and Nick Green.

Hechavarria, who the Marlins got from the Blue Jays in the Jose Reyes-led blockbuster this winter, was originally signed out of Cuba in 2010 for $10 million.

    They were exiled to the catacombs with him. They will remain exiled to the catacombs without him. Well, hope he enjoys his rehab stint – there are surely fewer vampires in Jacksonville than in the catacombs,

      Perhaps true Feesh fans will become an underground sect and you will announce yourselves to one another by drawing a symbol in the sand…

    I don’t know how his glove is, but I’d think Valaika would be at least as good, if not better, with the bat than Hechavarria
