Márquez Has Nagging Injury, Listed DTD
Tuesday, August 4th, 2054
Reports out of Los Angeles indicate that Carlos Márquez, the gifted center fielder, might be sidelined for 1-2 weeks or so with a knee sprain. The 31-year-old star suffered the injury in yesterday's Tigers-Angels game while running the bases. "It's a game time decision," noted the team doctor, "It all depends on how Carlos feels later today. If he can play, he will."

Márquez is currently batting .212 with 20 home runs and 58 RBIs.
