MLB Injury News:
Miami Marlins third baseman Placido Polanco exited last night's contest against the Milwaukee Brewers with lower back stiffness, according to Joe Morgan and Christina De Nicola of MLB.com. The Marlins are listing the veteran as day to day due to the ailment.
It's not yet clear when the injury was sustained, but it could have been when he leaned over Miami's dugout railing in pursuit of a popup off the bat of Carlos Gomez in the fifth inning. He was replaced by pinch-hitter Ed Lucas in the bottom of the sixth frame.
During the play, Polanco nearly fell over the railing, but Lucas and catchers Miguel Olivo and Rob Brantly ran to keep him from tumbling. Manager Mike Redmond wasn't aware of the extent of the injury after the game, as Polanco only told him his back had tightened up.
"He didn't tell me," Miami manager Mike Redmond
said of the extent of Polanco's injury. "He just said his back had
tightened up on him, so we had to get him out of there. I don't know if it was
on the railing or what."
His back has given Polanco issues since last season, as he only played in 90 games for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2012. He also experienced discomfort in his back during spring training, which had him sidelined early in March.
