Amezaga still resting

Alfredo Amezaga is eligible to come off the disabled list on June 1. The Marlins all-purpose utility player may need another 7-to-10 days after that.

“You’d be safe saying 7-to-10 days,” manager Fredi Gonzalez said.

Actually, there is no real timeline.

Amezaga is out with a left knee contusion, which actually is a bone bruise to the inner part of his left knee.

The only baseball activities he’s done since is play catch at Philadelphia a couple of days ago.

The MRI revealed a good sized bruise, roughly the size of a golf ball.

Until Thursday, Amezaga said he felt a pinch in his left knee. But he hasn’t experienced that feeling the past two days.

“It feels a lot better,” he said.

Before being activated, Amezaga is expected to play three or four rehab assignment games.

When that will be has not been determined.
