Marlins put Emilio Bonifacio on DL
Miami recalled outfielder Chris Coghlan and selected the contract of infielder Donovan Solano from Triple-A New Orleans prior to Sunday's game against the Indians.
First baseman Gaby Sanchez, who was on the NL All-Star team last season, was optioned to New Orleans following Saturday's game.
Bonifacio, who leads the majors with 20 stolen bases, jammed his hand on a dive back to first base Friday. He then was thrown out by catcher Carlos Santana, the first time Bonifacio has been caught stealing this season.
Bonifacio, a switch hitter, is batting .268. Sanchez was batting .197 with one homer and 11 RBIs.
