Miami Marlins RHP Edward Mujica was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a fractured right small toe. The team called up LHP Wade LeBlanc, who is 5-5 with a 3.74 ERA in 16 starts for Class AAA New Orleans. Mujica was hit on the foot by a Placido Polanco grounder in Friday's game but he stayed in the game after the play and finished the inning. "Then I came back to the dugout and started feeling it," Mujica said. "I started feeling a twinge in my ankle, and (pitching coach Randy St. Claire) came over and I said, 'I'm out because I'm feeling pain.'" Manager Ozzie Guillen said he hopes Mujica can return shortly after the All-Star break. Until he returns, Guillen said Mujica's eighth-inning role will be split by RHP Steve Cishek -- who tossed a scoreless eighth inning Sunday -- and left-handers Randy Choate and Mike Dunn. "(Mujica) could get better in four days, but you never know," Guillen said. "If we w...

Who Misses Jose Reyes?

Jose Reyes batted .354 in first half of 2011, and is batting .269 in 2012. It’s funny how some things work in this game. About a year ago this week we were staging a “Don’t Trade Reyes Rally” at Citi Field and everyday we were consumed with countless posts about keeping Reyes at all costs and how the team would be doomed if we lost him. I oughta know because I wrote a handful of...

MIAMI -- Seven innings and two runs allowed, Mark Buehrle will take that every time. And so will the Miami Marlins. Buehrle (7-8) also allowed seven hits and struck out seven in a 3-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies to win their third straight.

Phillies Swept Out of Miami
