Marlins 3B Anderson sidelined for at least several weeks

MLB

MIAMI (AP)Miami Marlins third baseman Brian Anderson will be sidelined for at least several weeks with a partial shoulder dislocation and was put on the 10-day injured list Tuesday.

Surgery is a possibility, general manager Kim Ng said.

”The most important thing for us right now is to give it some time to let the inflammation, pain and discomfort subside before we can give any further evaluation,” Ng said.

The Marlins reinstated Isan Diaz from the injured list. In Anderson’s absence, Diaz and Jon Berti are expected to share time at third.

Anderson is batting .250 with three homers and 11 RBIs.
