Miami, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Miami Marlins placed outfielder Christian Yelich on the 15-day disabled list Friday due to a lower back strain.

Yelich is hitting just .200 through 11 games after signing a seven-year, $49 million contract prior to the season.

In addition, the Marlins also placed catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia on the paternity list, recalled infielder Justin Bour and catcher Jhonatan Solano from Triple-A New Orleans and designated pitcher Grant Dayton for assignment.
