Just when Mike Redmond thought his team was getting healthy it appears more health concerns have reached the forefront.
Shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria, who hit the lone home run during the home stand and injured himself Wednesday making a throw during batting practice, may not make the trip with the team Thursday.
Redmond said the Marlins could opt to use Chris Valaika at shortstop or move second baseman Donovan Solano to short if needed. Valaika was charged with a fielding error Wednesday night.
“We got some options there,” Redmond said. “Obviously we can't afford another injury. It seems like we get a guy back and lose another guy. It's tough right now.”
Redmond said Hechavarria is set to be evaluated Thursday.
"I think he made a throw and had some discomfort in his elbow," Redmond said. "That's why we took him out. We should know more tomorrow hopefully."
