Penn sprains right ankle

Hayden Penn slipped coming off the mound in the sixth inning on Friday night, and after a few warmup tosses exited with a right ankle sprain.

The Marlins reliever was shaken up on Mike Fontenot’s single to right field. Coming off the mound and onto the grass, Penn fell to the ground while changing directions. He was examined by trainer Sean Cunningham and manager Fredi Gonzalez.

Penn did take a few warmup tosses, but he pointed to his ankle and he was replaced by Burke Badenhop.

Penn worked one-third of an inning, issuing a walk, single and collecting a strikeout.

To bad Penn had to come out because I know if he was still in there the Marlins would of had a win!! Burke Badenhop doesn’t need to be in the Majors bring someone else up and send him down. He is horrible!!!

In fairness to the Hopper, he has done a pretty good job. Entering in the middle of the inning with men on base was a new experience for him. Whomever is bridging that long relief role through the middle innings needs to get the job done, you are right about that. We’ll know more about Hayden, probably on Saturday.
