Greg Dobbs has been feeling pain in his lower right leg.
For about a week, Greg Dobbs has dealt with some discomfort on the side of his lower right leg.
During Thursday's game, the leg tightened a bit, and Dobbs was replaced in the bottom of the seventh inning of the Marlins' 6-3 loss to the Cardinals at Busch Stadium.
The team announced Dobbs has a right ankle strain, and he's day to day.
Oh, that is just fabulous. Between shattered elbows, bruised knee caps, nearly broken hands, strained right wrist and now right ankle strains. Third base is becoming the position of death for the Marlins.
Hopefully it is a lower ankle strain, because high ankle strains really can really cause a longterm problem. Helms can fill the position for awhile, but he is no long term answer. Maybe it is next to nothing and the cold weather just made it worse. Hurt muscles and tendons really tighten in when it is cold.
