Marlins second baseman Rafael Furcal injured his left hamstring after trying to beat out a double play in the bottom of the third inning in Saturday afternoon’s game against the Mets. He did not take the field for the top of the fourth, and was instead replaced at his position by Jeff Baker.
Furcal, 36, made his 2014 debut on June 13 after missing the first 65 games of the season with a strained left hamstring. It was his first appearance in the major leagues since August 30, 2012 when he was with the Cardinals. Furcal slashed .171/.216/.229 with no home runs or stolen bases and only two RBI in 37 plate appearances.
