Boone to the DL

The Marlins have placed Aaron Boone on the 15-day DL.

Aaron Boone will miss the next two to three weeks with a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee. But the infielder said he was relieved the injury wasn't more serious.


Boone was placed on the 15-day disabled list. The Marlins planned to call up outfielder Todd Linden from Triple A Albuquerque (N.M.) in time for today's game.

In the meantime, Jason Wood will handle the platoon job at first when needed against certain lefties.

I'm not exactly sure what Linden is going to do, other than spell an outfielder here and there.
