Second X-ray shows Marlins prospect Jake Marisnick has broken bone in hand

Just when you thought the Marlins were getting clear of injury…

Marlins outfield prospect Jake Marisnick has a broken bone in his left hand and will miss about a month.

Marisnick, the organization’s No. 3 prospect and No. 64 overall by Baseball America, was hit by a Trevor Rosenthal pitch in a game against the Cardinals on Wednesday. Original X-rays were negative but the Marlins decided to have him examined again because the hand was not responding.

“Initially with the swelling sometimes those things don’t show up,” manager Mike Redmond said. “It wasn’t progressing. It wasn’t getting better.

“It’s disappointing for a young kid. You don’t ever want that to happen.”

Marisnick will be sent down to rehab the injury and start the season at Class AA Jacksonville. He played in eight spring training games, hitting .455 (8-for-11) with a .500 on base percentage.
