Marlins shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria injured his left shoulder in a collision with teammate Christian Yelich last night and he told Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald that he expects to be sidelined until at least Monday.
The collision occurred when Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy hit a bloop into shallow left field in the ninth inning. Hechavarria dove and appeared to get a knee into his shoulder from Yelich. You can watch the play here.
Hechavarria said his shoulder hurts when he does “any type of movement, up or down,” which doesn’t sound promising, but more should be known when after he’s seen by doctors this afternoon.
Hechavarria, 26, is batting .300/.330/.394 with two home runs and 20 RBI over 49 games this season.
