ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Marlins called up Bryan Peterson from Triple-A New Orleans Saturday, where he was hitting .351 with 11 home runs and 26 RBI.
Petersen wasn't given much time to settle in, as he was inserted in Saturday's lineup, starting in right field and hitting eighth. Mike Stanton was the designated hitter Saturday in the second game of three against Texas at the Rangers Ballpark.
Petersen, a 24-year-old outfielder, was called up earlier this season and saw action in four games, going 0-for-4 at the plate. He played in 23 games in 2010 and hit .083.
Petersen was selected in the fourth round in the 2007 draft by the Marlins.
To make room for Petersen, they designated infielder Jose Lopez to assignment.
