Quite a scare for the Marlins this evening.

Hanley Ramirez was diagnosed with a left shoulder sprain after leaving tonight’s game against the Mets in the bottom of the sixth inning.

The injury occurred when Ramirez hustled (see what I did there?) toward left field and dove to attempt to catch a ball off the bat of Angel Pagan. He appeared to be in some serious pain as he walked off the field, but the early word from Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post is that he is listed as day-to-day.

Ramirez has an underwhelming .243/.333/.379 batting line and .712 OPS on the year, but he is batting .280 with six homers, 10 doubles and 28 RBI over 44 games since returning from the disabled list in mid-June. He had just 10 extra-base hits over his first 48 games this season.

    I see what you did there. How generous, how kind, what a distraction akin to the mother bird with the faked broken wing trick distracting the wolverine from her nest and your readers from the horrendous game-blowing boehner (see what I did there?) the rookie second baseman of your beloved Mutts committed in the top of the ninth to hand the Feesh a game they had all but lost on a silver platter.

    But more on that tomorrow. I have to think of the right words to comfort proudlycanadian that he won’t get to read my hilarious fox-and-the-grapes metaphor tomorrow morning.

      Eencidentally, DJ, not to rub it in or anything but K-Rod wins this game, doesn’t he?
