Nunez sprains right ankle
Marlins reliever Leo Nunez was removed in the eighth inning on Tuesday night with a right ankle sprain.
Florida’s primary setup right-hander, Nunez faced two Orioles’ batters, surrendering a home run to Matt Wieters and a single to Robert Andino. Immediately, trainer Sean Cunningham and manager Fredi Gonzalez came to the mound.
Nunez has appeared in 37 games, and he’s been the bridge reliever to closer Matt Lindstrom. Nunez was replaced by left-hander Dan Meyer.
