WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Miami Marlins have placed second baseman Emilio Bonifacio on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left thumb and purchased the contract of infielder Nick Green from Triple-A New Orleans. Bonifacio injured his thumb in the ninth inning of Friday's game against Washington, and manager Ozzie Guillen said afterward that he thought that the injury would be season-ending. X-rays on Bonifacio's thumb were negative. Guillen said on Saturday that he felt Bonifacio, who had surgery on the thumb in May, would play again when he's eligible. Green was batting .344 with 12 home runs and 47 RBIs at New Orleans.

Marlins player fakes out Nationals fans

Miami Marlins second baseman Emilio Bonifacio caught a popup near the first base line to end the second inning of Friday night's game in D.C. against the Washington Nationals.

Instead, however, he faked out the Nationals fans as he headed back to the dugout...

In the process, he sprained his left thumb -- the same thumb he sprained May 18 before having ligament surgery...

Dunn Gives Away Game

The Miami Marlins had a two run lead going into the bottom of the eighth inning but wound up dropping Saturday’s game 10-7 to the Washington Nationals.    Mike Dunn allowed six runs, all unearned in the eighth after he committed an error to get the rally started.   It was an ugly inning for the lefty as he allowed back-to-back homeruns during the comeback by Washington.   ...

Bryce Harper is sorry for breaking his bat on home plate, okay?

There was a time when a Bryce Harper mini-temper-tantrum like the one he threw in the fourth inning Sunday afternoon would have kicked off a storm of controversy. Nowadays? No big deal. Oh, and Harper apparently apologized to Marlins catcher John Buck for the splinters in his next AB in the sixth, and Buck accepted: "I saw it hit and that’s why I kind of jumped away...

Another Hypothetical Heath Bell Deal

The Miami Marlins grand experiment hasn’t worked this year, leading to the trades of Hanley Ramirez, Anibal Sanchez, Omar Infante and Randy Choate before the non-waiver trade deadline. In a perfect world, they wouldn’t have had to trade those players, because they would still be fighting for a playoff spot at this point in the season. But it hasn’t been a perfect world for...
