"I didn't like the way he went after the first fly ball that [Preston] Tucker caught [to start the eighth]," Hinch said. "You can tell there was something bothering him. I didn't know if it was a hamstring or quad or calf, so he came out of the game and had a little bit of tenderness in his ankle. We're confident it's a mild ankle sprain."
Marisnick, who entered the game as a pinch-runner for Colby Rasmus, went 1-for-2 and is hitting .163 this spring.
