Treanor to the DL

The club will be without Matt Treanor's services for a couple of weeks.

Marlins catcher Matt Treanor was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, retroactive to Tuesday, because of a strained left shoulder. It is the same shoulder that required surgery in October to repair a torn labrum.

Treanor last played Monday in Philadelphia but had not taken batting practice and was placed on the DL after undergoing an MRI exam. The Marlins called up catcher Paul Hoover from Triple A Albuquerque (N.M.) to fill Treanor's spot on the roster.

Hoover, 30, was hitting .281 with five home runs and 34 RBI for the Isotopes. He had four hits in 21 at-bats with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 2001 and '02.

This is not good.

Maybe the short rest is all Treanor will need to be back in the lineup but shoulders can be complicated.  With some luck, we will see him in uniform soon.

If Fishfan has time to chime in, which he probably doesn't, I have no doubt that he knows more about this than I ever will.

I don't know much about Mr.Hoover but hopefully he will do an admirable job while filling in.

In order to make room for Hoover on the roster, Carlos Martinez was put on the 60-day DL.
