Alejandro De Aza injures ankle

In the final inning of the last spring training game of the year, Alejandro De Aza sadly kept his unlucky streak alive.

As Mbaamin reported in comments for yesterday's game, De Aza suffered an injury.

He was on the field for several minutes and left on a cart. The Marlins are waiting for X-ray results, and are calling the injury a left ankle sprain until they get the results.

''The crowd was loud and I didn't hear him call for it,'' Raynor said. ``I think my shin went into his ankle. I'm praying for him. I saw him at the last second and slid, attempting to go after the ball and hoping to avoid him.''

De Aza won't be ready for Opening Day...

De Aza can't catch a break -- and by "break"  I mean the good fortune kind, the other kind, he catches just fine.

The Marlins made some transactional moves yesterday.

The Marlins made several expected roster moves. They purchased the contracts of infielder Jason Wood and catcher Paul Hoover. To accommodate them on the 40-man roster, right-handers Henry Owens and Josh Johnson were transferred to the 60-day disabled list.

Outfielder Brett Carroll was recalled from Albuquerque, and Jeremy Hermida and Mike Rabelo were placed on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to March 21. 

The current roster won't remain intact for long. Hermida played in a minor league game Saturday and could be activated as soon as Saturday. Gonzalez anticipates Rabelo needing additional time. 

That leaves the Marlins 25-man roster at 24 while waiting on De Aza's status.  Should he be put on the DL, and that seems the most likely case, then Alexis Gomez is expected to be added to the Opening Day roster.

Nothing like limping into the start of the season.
