Oblique injury lands Joe Mahoney on the shelf

     JUPITER -- The injuries keep piling up for the Marlins' first basemen. Add Joe Mahoney's name to the list. Mahoney, who shares the team lead this spring with three homers, has an oblique injury that will keep him out of action indefinitely and pretty much end whatever chance he had of making the team.

     Mahoney, who had gone 7 for 30 this spring after being claimed from the Baltimore Orioles in November, provided the Marlins with a left-handed power bat that's lacking on the club. First basemen on the Marlins have been having a tough time staying healthy. Logan Morrison (knee) is out until April while non-roster invite Casey Kotchman cut his finger early in camp and missed a few days.
