From MLB.com beat writer Joe Frisaro comes word that the Marlins have shut down outfeilder Justin Ruggiano for the remainder of the 2012 season because of a sprained right shoulder that he suffered last Friday night while trying to make a diving catch.

Ruggiano does not need shoulder surgery and should be back near full health after a couple months of rest.

The 30-year-old was one of the few bright spots in a dismal season for the Fish, posting a .313/.374/.535 batting line, 13 home runs, 23 doubles and 36 RBI across 320 plate appearances. He also tallied 14 stolen bases and made multiple highlight-reel catches in the spacious outfield at Marlins Park.

    Oh well, there goes the Feesh’s last pretense of an offense.
