Justin Bour sent home for MRI on ankle; Marlins awaiting results to determine if DL stint needed


            Justin Bour was sent back to Miami on Tuesday to undergo an MRI on his ailing right ankle.

            Bour, who missed his third consecutive game, planted his foot awkwardly recording an out at first base this past Saturday in Atlanta. Bour left the game limping shortly after the play.

            Don Mattingly said Bour will miss the remainder of the road trip which concludes Wednesday in New York, and potentially could be placed on the disabled list depending on the results of the MRI.

“Once we get the results, we’ll know,” Mattingly said. “He could come back but seems unlikely for [Wednesday]. For our next series before the break, we’d like to have a chance to use him. If not we would retro him to when it happened and he'd go on the DL."
