MIAMI (AP) -The Florida Marlins placed infielder Aaron Boone on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday because of a sprained left knee.
The 34-year-old Boone was taken out of Sunday's game after injuring his knee during a cutoff play in the fourth inning.
In his first year with the Marlins, Boone is batting .286 with five home runs and 28 RBIs in 69 games. Primarily a third baseman, Boone started 46 games at first base in place of Mike Jacobs, who returned to the Marlins lineup this past weekend after a long stint on the DL.
Outfielder Todd Linden was brought up from Triple-A Albuquerque, and outfielder Cody Ross was transferred to the 60-day DL with a left hamstring strain.
Linden hit .143 in 13 games for the Marlins earlier this season.
