Dallas McPherson is experiencing tightness on his right side.
The walking wounded on the Marlins gained a new member. Third baseman Dallas McPherson, who was scheduled to make the trip for today's game against the Braves, remained behind in Jupiter due to tightness in his right oblique.
Hopefully it is nothing, but oblique muscle strains can be a lingering pain in the....side.
If you have never strained one, it is kinda like straining your back, you never know how much you use it until it starts hurting.
