PITTSBURGH (AP) -The Florida Marlins activated pitcher Byung-Hyun Kim from the disabled list and placed infielder Mike Jacobs on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured right thumb Thursday.
The Jacobs' move was retroactive to Monday.
Kim, who was acquired from Colorado on Sunday for pitcher Jorge Julio, will make his Florida debut as a starter Friday night at Tampa Bay. The one-time Arizona Diamondbacks closer known for his submarine delivery was primarily a reliever for most of his first four major league seasons with Arizona starting in 1999, and again with Boston in 2003, but has mostly started since 2004 with Colorado.
Jacobs, who was batting .281 with four home runs and 14 RBIs, had been bothered by his thumb for most of last week and left Sunday's 6-4 loss in Washington after the fourth inning.
Right-hander Wes Obermueller was moved to the bullpen to make room in the rotation for Kim.
