Marlins on the mend
Some quick injury information. Foremost, Hanley Ramirez took batting practice, crushed a few balls, and took grounders at shortstop, making strong throws to first base.
Ramirez has been bothered by a sore shoulder. He was back in the lineup at shortstop, hitting third against the Red Sox on Saturday.
Ramirez said he felt good.
Matt Lindstrom said on Friday he was planning on throwing Sunday. He was a day off. Lindstrom admitted he was trying to push it. Now, he is slated to throw off flat ground on Monday, which is seven days from the time he took the MRI on his strained right rotator cuff.
Dallas McPherson’s right oblique is not considered serious. He hopes to hit off the tee on Sunday, and be back by a few days after that. Gaby Sanchez’s bruised left knee is on the mend. He could be back by Tuesday or Wednesday.
