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.
