The Miami Marlins have activated outfielder Austin Kearns from the 15-day disable list, according to Joe Capozzi of The Palm Beach Post. To make room for Kearns, the Marlins optioned outfielder Bryan Peterson to Triple-A New Orleans.

Kearns has been out since May 22 with a hamstring injury. The 32-year-old recently completed a brief minor league rehab stint in which he went 1-6 at the plate over his three games with the Marlins High-A affiliate.

Prior to injuring his hamstring, Kearns had gotten off to a hot start with the Marlins. Over his 22 games and 48 at-bats, Kearns hit at a clip of .375/.444/.646 with seven extra-base hits and nine RBIs.

Peterson, 26, joined the Marlins at the end of April. Over his 22 games played and 52 at-bats with the Marlins, Peterson only managed an OPS of .555.

Peterson has spent a majority of the season with Miami’s Triple-A affiliate, where he’s posted a line of .333/.418/.419.
