Hayden Penn is day to day

New, comments

Hayden Penn left yesterday's game with a right ankle sprain.

Hayden Penn slipped coming off the mound in the sixth inning on Friday night, and after a few warmup tosses exited with a right ankle sprain.

The Marlins reliever was shaken up on Mike Fontenot's single to right field. Coming off the mound and onto the grass, Penn fell to the ground while changing directions. He was examined by trainer Sean Cunningham and manager Fredi Gonzalez.

Ankle sprains are funny, in that, they can last for just a couple of weeks or last all season.  Which type of one this is, I don't know, but losing another arm, so to speak, isn't a good thing, no matter how poorly he was performing.
