 DENVER (AP) - Miami Marlins rookie outfielder Marcell Ozuna will miss the rest of the season because of a left thumn injury.
Ozuna was placed on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to Tuesday and was scheduled to undergo surgery Friday in Miami. He was playing center field at Colorado on Monday when he sustained the injury - torn ligaments and an avulsion fracture - making a diving catch on a sixth-inning drive by Michael Cuddyer.
Ozuna remained in the game, and afterward, was initially optioned to Double-A Jacksonville. With the thumb still bothering him, however, he traveled first to Miami to have team doctors examine him and they learned of the severity of the injury on Wednesday.
``It's a minimum 6-8 weeks, then you have to ramp up from there,'' Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. ``So, we're going to run out of time this season.
``Just like any player, he's going to have to come out and make the team next year. He did a great job. That's how it goes. He makes a game-saving catch, gets hurt, and ends up on the DL. It's really unfortunate. He did a great job and he needed this time to work on some things. It's too bad all the way around.''
Ozuna batted .265 with 3 homers and 32 RBIs in 70 games this season.
