Bad news for the rest of this week. As per rototwire:

Jun 9
Josh Willingham (C) FLA
Willingham missed Friday's game with a sore left hand and back pain. He'll have an MRI on his left hand on Friday and will likely be out until Monday, the team's official web site reports. Willingham hurt the hand while batting on Tuesday. The injury doesn't sound too serious, but expect the Marlins to play it safe with his return



Trying to figure out if I should pick up Piazza or someone for the weekend. :-? :-/

But, now I'll have to wait to trade Willingham. :~(

The Miami Herald says:

Josh Willingham (hand) won't return to the starting lineup until Wednesday at the earliest.

Willingham has been out since straining his wrist while swinging during Tuesday's game. Joe Borchard will continue to start in his place.


This keeps getting worse and worse. :-t

Placed on the DL retroactive to the 7th...

MIAMI -- Rather than risk any further damage, the Marlins will play it safe with Josh Willingham and have placed the left fielder on the 15-day disabled list.
They made the transaction official after Florida's 4-1 win over Atlanta on Tuesday. They recalled Chris Aguila from Triple-A Albuquerque to take Willingham's spot on the roster

Willingham sprained his left hand in the ninth inning of last Tuesday's game at San Francisco during an at-bat against the Giants' Jason Schmidt.

On Tuesday afternoon, the left fielder experienced discomfort hitting soft tosses and off the tee. Later in the day, he took a cortisone shot, which would have prevented him fromp playing for three or four more days anyway.

"I tried to hit and it still hurts," Willingham said. "It's a strained ligament and it just hasn't gotten better."

Willingham hasn't played since the ninth inning of that loss in San Francisco, as he missed the weekend series at San Diego.

The Marlins had hoped that after Monday's off-day, Willingham's hand would respond favorably for the series with the Braves on Tuesday at Dolphin Stadium.

"He still has some pain there, so instead of testing it every day, we'll put him on the DL, and he will miss another week," manager Joe Girardi said. "He's already missed half of it, so he will miss another week. Hands are tricky things. You never know how it is going to be when he wakes up every day. He's still a little sore."

Willingham was placed on the disabled list retroactive to June 7, and the earliest he could be activated is June 23 at Baltimore.

"You don't want to be stupid," Girardi said. "You wake up, take one swing and you're back where you started."

Cody Ross and Joe Borchard have been filling in left field for Willingham, who is batting .267 with nine home runs and 34 RBIs.
