ARLINGTON — The Florida Marlins are ready to give outfielder Bryan Petersen a chance to show he belongs in the big leagues.

The Marlins recalled Petersen on Saturday, designating Jose Lopez for assignment. Instead of putting Petersen in a utility-type role, as they have in the past, the Marlins intend to start him. He was the starting right fielder and No. 9 hitter for Saturday’s game against the Texas Rangers.

“I love to start,” Petersen said. “I think I’ll be able to help the team. I’m going to take advantage of it and make the best of it, taking it one day at a time.”
