The Miami Marlins have called up catcher Rob Brantly, one of the players they acquired in the trade that sent Anibal Sanchez and Omar Infante to the Detroit Tigers, reports Joe Capozzi of The Palm Beach Post:

To make room on their roster for Brantly, the Marlins optioned catcher Brett Hayes to Triple-A.

Prior to being traded to the Marlins, Brantly played for the Tigers’ Double- and Triple-A affiliates. He spent fourteen games with Miami’s Triple-A club before being called up. On the season, the 23-year-old has hit .298/.340/.412 with twenty-four doubles and five home runs over 362 at-bats.
