The Marlins 21 hits and their big offensive 14-3 showing yesterday came at a bittersweet price – they lost their All Star 2nd baseman for a little while.
The good news is, the x-rays were negative and the Marlins and Gordon hope that he will avoid the DL for the duration of the break.
‘It could have been much worse,” Hill said. ”We’re optimistic it won’t be a long-term issue for him.”
On the other hand, the Marlins scrambled a bit to fill the void, sending Adam Conley (who got his first MLB win yesterday) down to AAA New Orleans and brought up Donovan Solano.
Now the Fish will have no active representation at the All Star game in Cincinnati.
