Booney leaves today's game with a knee injury.


Recommended Posts

MIAMI -- Marlins first baseman Aaron Boone exited Sunday's game with discomfort in his left knee. The 34-year-old is listed as day-to-day. Boone tweaked his knee in the fourth inning against the Twins. On Jason Bartlett's RBI single to center, Boone sprinted to the pitcher's mound to get in cutoff position. He seemed to pull up while running to the mound to cut off Brett Carroll's throw from center. Assistant trainer Mike Kozak and manager Fredi Gonzalez quickly tended to Boone, who limped off the field. In 2004, Boone missed the entire season because of surgery to the same knee. The Marlins are platooning Boone and Mike Jacobs at first base. Jacobs came off the disabled list after Friday's game. He had been out with a fractured right thumb. Boone is batting .286 and he's been valuable filling in at first and third base.




I wonder what the Marlins will do if somehow Booney has to go on the DL.

I'd love to give Pascucci a shot if Boone goes on the DL...does he play anything else besides 1st?

he's been mostly 1b, but has seen a game in LF


a few years ago in Montreal, he played 1b,lf,rf but I think his body has matured a little more and he is mostly a 1b now
