Cameron Maybin Latest Marlin to Suffer Injury

 

                ATLANTA -- The injury list keeps growing for the Marlins. The latest to go down: center fielder Cameron Maybin, who suffered a lower back and left leg injury on Tuesday when he slammed into the wall at Turner Field.

              While manager Edwin Rodriguez said it's possible Maybin could return in two or three days, don't count on it. Standing at his locker afterward, Maybin said he was in great pain and wasn't sure if he would be able to play. After all, only five games remain in the season.

              "My whole left leg, it was really numb," said Maybin, who was carted off the field after his collision with the wall in the seventh. "My back, there was a lot of tingling. I tried to get up, but I couldn't."

              X-rays were negative.

              Maybin was trying to chase down Brooks Conrad's long fly ball, which nicked the end of his glove but bounced away for RBI triple that tied the score.
