Marisnick to have meniscus tear repaired

MIAMI — Marlins prospect Jake Marisnick on Monday will undergo a scope on his left knee to repair a meniscus tear.

The 22-year-old outfielder has felt discomfort in the knee for several months, and he believes it was brought on by wear and tear.

Recovery time is four to six weeks.

Marisnick was promoted from Double-A Jacksonville in late July, and in 40 big league games he is batting .183.

Also, outfielder Christian Yelich will had a minor procedure on Monday to remove a stye from his right eye. The stye surfaced in July, around the time of the All-Star Game.

Like Marisnick, Yelich opened the season at Double-A Jacksonville before being promoted to the big leagues in late July. He’s become the regular left field, and is batting .288 since his promotion.

Donovan Solano, who was plunked on the back of his helmet by a pitch on Saturday night, is feeling fine. But as a precaution, the second baseman was not in the starting lineup on Sunday.

Solano was struck behind the left ear in the back of his helmet by a 95-mph Evan Reed fastball in the 10th inning.

Miami went to beat the Tigers, 2-1.
