In the 5th inning Saturday night Omar Infante appears to have hurt his right leg.  He was at the plate when after a fouling a pitch off he needed to have Marlins trainers come out and take a quick look at his leg.  The a few pitches later he hit a hard right ball to third and didn't even take 3 steps towards first before stopping.  It is unclear at this point whether the injury is to his knee or his hamstring.  Emilio Bonifacio was moved from left field to second base to take over for Infante and Scott Cousins was put in left.

The word is that he left the game with a right hamstring cramp and is day-to-day.  This is great news for the Marlins considering the last thing the Marlins need right now is another injury with Logan Morrison on the DL and the Marlins rotating players at third base every night.
