Hanley Ramirez day-to-day

Hanley Ramirez left yesterday's game with a tight right groin.

Hanley Ramirez left Tuesday's game in the bottom of the third inning with a tight right groin, and his status is day-to-day.

After the game, Ramirez said he didn't know if he would be ready for Wednesday's series finale with the Phillies. Florida lost 5-3 on Tuesday.

The Marlins All-Star shortstop experienced some discomfort after extending to beat out an infield single in the top of the third inning against the Phillies. Ramirez raced out a grounder to shortstop Jimmy Rollins. On his last step he reached his leg out, causing some aggravation.

With Hanley out, and will not be in the starting lineup today, and Amezaga on the DL the Marlins are short an outfielder.  Say What?!  It is true.  For you see, Coghlan is an infielder masquerading as an outfielder.  Coghlan can play second or third, that we know of and the Marlins only other outfielder is Gload whose Grit is needed off the bench.  The same could be said of Helms.

So that leaves a hole in the outfield.
