ARLINGTON, Texas The Marlins made two roster moves after Friday's 15-5 loss to Texas at Rangers Ballpark.
Pitcher Brad Hand was called up from Double-A Jacksonville and will start Saturday, and reliever Ryan Webb was put on the 15-day disabled list to make room for Hand on the roster.
This is Hand's second stint with the Marlins, and he is 0-3 with a 3.45 ERA in his three starts. The 21-year-old lefthander did not pitch badly, but his starts came during the Marlins struggles in June when they went 5-23.
Hand is 7-2 with a 4.15 ERA with Jacksonville.
Webb, who is 1-4 with a 3.67 ERA in 35 appearances, has right shoulder inflammation.
"I just hurts to throw a baseball right now," Webb said after the game.
