DENVER (AP) — The Miami Marlins have called up two of their top prospects, outfielders Christian Yelich and Jake Marisnick, from their Double A affiliate in Jacksonville.

Yelich and Marisnick were both slated to make their big league debut in Tuesday night’s game at Colorado. They filled the roster spots of outfielder Marcell Ozuna and infielder Derek Dietrich, who were optioned to Jacksonville after Monday night’s 3-1 win over the Rockies.

Yelich hit .277 with seven home runs and 29 RBIs in 48 games with Jacksonville, coming back from a bruised foot that sidelined him in April and an abdominal strain that caused him to miss time in early June.

Marisnick was batting .295 with 12 home runs and 46 RBIs prior to his promotion.
