Greg Dobbs has been diagnosed with a partially torn left hamstring, jeopardizing the veteran bench player’s odds of beginning the season on the Marlins’ active roster.
Dobbs re-signed with the Marlins in January, getting $3 million for two seasons after hitting .275 with eight homers and a .701 OPS in 439 plate appearances last year.
Dobbs had never even gotten 400 plate appearances before, but was pushed into extended action at third base. He won’t see nearly as much playing time this season with Hanley Ramirez atop the depth chart, but manager Ozzie Guillen told Joe Frisaro of MLB.com that the 33-year-old Dobbs could potentially be back in the lineup next week.
