MLB News: Phillies CF Brandon Marsh (knee) exits game after wall collision

Philadelphia center fielder Brandon Marsh exited the Phillies’ Tuesday game against the Toronto Blue Jays due to a knee injury and is listed as day-to-day.

According to team, Marsh emerged with a bruised left knee and will be evaluated further Wednesday. Phillies manager Rob Thomson said he didn’t believe Marsh sustained ligament damage.

Marsh leaped into the left-center-field wall and landed awkwardly in the top of the third inning. Right fielder Matt Vierling moved to center to take Marsh’s spot and rookie Dalton Guthrie, who hit his first career home run in the fifth, took over in right.

A similar injury in mid-August put Marsh on the 10-day injured list. He attempted to make a catch near the wall against the Cincinnati Reds, landed awkwardly and was diagnosed with a left knee bruise and left ankle sprain.

Marsh, 24, is batting .239 with 10 homers, 49 RBIs and 10 stolen bases in 122 games overall this year. He started the season with the Los Angeles Angels, but was shipped to Philadelphia at the trade deadline. He is hitting .281 with two home runs and 12 RBIs in 29 games with the Phillies.

Prior to exiting the Tuesday game, Marsh was 0-for-1 with a strikeout.
