Amezaga tweaks right knee

All-purpose Alfredo Amezaga is resting a sore right knee, which is why he isn’t playing in the Marlins first two Grapefruit League games.

Amezaga felt some discomfort while batting on Tuesday in an intrasquad scrimmage. If the knee doesn’t show improvement in the next day or two, it could impact whether he plays for Mexico in the World Baseball Classic.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez said the team is closely watching, and the ailment may be enough to keep him from the Classic. Amezaga is the frontrunner to play center field for Mexico.

Some encouraging news on Thursday was Amezaga did some light jogging.
