X-rays negative on DeSclafani; Flynn optioned back to Triple A New Orleans

Marlins starting pitcher Anthony DeSclafani said the line drive that struck him on his right forearm and forced him to leave Friday's 9-5 loss to the Athletics shouldn't keep him out too long.

He thinks its just a bone bruise and he said expects to be able to throw on Saturday. Manager Mike Redmond said x-rays peformed on DeSclafani were negative, but the arm swelled up on him.

"We'll see how it feels when I wake up and evaluate it [Saturday]," DeSclafani said. "It felt good to keep going, but I understand where he's coming from. I still had a sweat going and a lot of adrenaline. I didn't quite feel it when i was out there. I might have been able to keep pitching. I felt like I wasn't affected by it at all, but it's their judgment, their decision to take me out. I'm not going to argue with that."

> After the game, the Marlins optioned left-hander Brian Flynn back to Triple A New Orleans. Redmond said the team will make a corresponding move Saturday.
