Hayes has separated left shoulder
As a result of a hard collision at home plate on Tuesday night, Brett Hayes has a separated left shoulder.
“Separated left shoulder,” Hayes said shortly before the Marlins faced the Nationals on Wednesday night. “Nothing is torn. Who knows what will happen.”
As of now, surgery isn’t an option. And while Hayes likely will miss the rest of the season, he says he should be healthy for Spring Training.
Hayes was hurt after colliding at home plate with Nyjer Morgan in the top of the 10th inning. Hayes said he didn’t hear anything from Morgan.
Asked if he felt Morgan made a clean hit, Hayes said: “Obviously, we all know last week [against St. Louis] and what he tried to do. Put that aside, and it was a good, clean hit in my opinion. Do I feel if he had slid that he would have been safe, absolutely.
“Do I think he decided to run me over as he rounded third, absolutely. That’s my opinion. But in terms of the hit, I thought it was a clean hit. Nothing wrong with the hit. I just hope the intentions were good.”
