By on 7/13/2014 03:46:00 PM

According to Juan C. Rodriguez of the Sun Sentinel, Brad Hand of the Marlins left Sunday’s game against the Mets with a right shin contusion. He is considered day-to-day.

Hand went for 4 innings giving up 3 runs on 6 hits while walking 2 and striking out 1. He is in line for the loss as the Mets have a 5-1 lead on the Marlins.

In 39.1 innings pitched this season, Hand has a 5.26 ERA while striking out 28 and walking 21. He has struggled with his command as he has a 1.75 WHIP.

The 24-year old pitched 20.2 innings in 2013 and had a 3.05 ERA while striking out 15 and walking 8. He started 2 games and came in relief in 5. He had a 1.02 WHIP.

The Marlins sit at 44-49 and 3rd in the National League Eastern Division. They are 6.5 games back of the Nationals, who sit at 50-42. Miami has lost 3 straight and are 4-6 in their last 10 after starting off the year strong staying over .500 for most of the first half. Their youth started off strong, but the normal slumps took over.

Hand could be placed on the disabled list soon and we will get that information out as soon as it is released.
