Marlins lose All-Star Dee Gordon to dislocated thumb

Dee Gordon sat out the All-Star game with a dislocated left thumb suffered Saturday, but the Marlins insisted he wouldn’t need a disabled list stint and could return as soon as the second series of the second half.

Today they placed the speedy second baseman on the disabled list with a dislocated left thumb. He’s eligible to return on July 27 after hitting .338 with 33 steals and a .772 OPS in the first half.

Miami is apparently planning to shift Martin Prado to second base and use Casey McGehee at third base after grabbing him off the scrap heap from the Giants.

LOS ANGELES — Jeff Samardjiza has been placed on the 10-day injured list by the San Francisco Giants due to right shoulder impingement.

Manager Gabe Kapler said before Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers that the right-hander told trainers and the coaching staff that he felt like wasn’t able to get the arm loose during Friday’s game. Samardjiza is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Saturday.

Samardjiza went four-plus innings and allowed six runs on seven hits in a 7-2 loss to the Dodgers. He is 0-2 with a 9.88 ERA in three starts.

The Giants have recalled left-hander Andrew Suarez from their alternate training site, but Kapler said he hasn’t finalized a revised starting rotation.
