Right-handers Luis Ayala and Tim Wood have been recalled by the Florida Marlins from Triple-A New Orleans.

The moves were made Saturday before Florida played the San Diego Padres.

Ayala and Wood fill spots that opened Friday night, when the Marlins sent Chris Volstad _ who made 27 starts this season _ to New Orleans after he allowed six runs in 1 2-3 innings against San Diego.

Infielder Gaby Sanchez also was optioned to the minors after Friday's game.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez said the Marlins needed bullpen help, especially after Florida relievers were called upon to throw 12 2-3 innings Thursday and Friday.
