Sierra will start in center field and will bat eighth Wednesday in Game 2 of the Marlins' divisional-round series with the Braves, Andre Fernandez of Sirius XM Radio reports. Sierra was also in the lineup Tuesday in Game 1, going 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored. The 24-year-old should continue to serve as the Marlins' primary center fielder throughout the NLDS with Starling Marte (hand) unavailable.
Sierra (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Thursday. Sierra spent nearly a month sidelined with a strained right hamstring, but he'll return to the active roster with four games remaining in the regular season. The 24-year-old should resume his role as outfield depth for the remainder of the 2020 campaign.
Sierra is making progress in his recovery from a strained right hamstring and has participated in sim games without issues, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. The Marlins haven't supplied a clear timeline for Sierra's return, though it sounds as though he has a chance to make it back before the end of the season. He hit a solid .278/.372/.417 in 15 games prior to suffering the injury.
Sierra was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a strained right hamstring. This was expected. The move is retroactive to Monday, making Sierra eligible to return Sept. 3 should he prove ready. In 15 games prior to landing on the shelf, Sierra hit .278/.372/.417 with eight runs scored, seven RBI and four stolen bases. Brandon Leibrandt was summoned to the majors in a corresponding move, while Jon Berti and Lewis Brinson are candidates to cover center field in Sierra's absence.
Sierra is headed to the injured list with an unspecified injury, Craig Mish of Sports Grid reports. This explains why Sierra has been absent since Sunday. Mish says manager Don Mattingly will address the nature of Sierra's injury later Wednesday. The IL move is not yet official, and it is unclear if this is a physical injury or something COVID-19 related.
